White Water Rafting in New Zealand
In New Zealand, birthplace of adventure racing and bungee jumping, white water rafting takes on a whole new character. Kiwis (New Zealanders) have a reputation of being a hearty and adventurous lot-- when white water rafting, they definitely live up to this stereotype. Whether it is sunny and warm or bitingly frigid, Kiwi outfitters are running rafting trips. On winter trips (July-October), it’s not uncommon for it to be necessary for rafters to jump out of the raft to carry it over small stretches of ice. Given this extreme sense of adventure, it’s no wonder the rivers run in New Zealand often defy traditional classification scales. Rivers in the South Island can go from low flows to flood stage in a matter of hours in heavy rain-- and trips are rarely cancelled.
