An ultimate day out with a bunch of mates!

The amazing scenery and clean water make this a really special day. We run this as an exclusive tour and a minimum of four people are required for the trip.

An ultimate day out with a bunch of mates! Choose between four-wheel driving, mountain biking or a helicopter ride through the Glenhope Station, a working high country farm with amazing scenery. Then tackle the Grade 3 rapids of the Upper Waiau-uha gorges.

"Wow! East Coast's best keep secret."
Phil [River Guide]

Rafting begins after morning tea beside the river. Inland Adventures will provide you with all the gear. A comprehensive safety briefing will ensure you know what to do out on the water, even if this is your first time rafting.

As it is a bit tricky to access, this section of Waiau-uha is one of rafting’s best-kept secrets! It has stunning rugged gorges with steep rocky walls, tall waterfalls, wide-open valleys and pockets of green bush. With a picnic lunch and plenty of chances to swim it is a pretty unbeatable day. We usually arrive back in Hanmer Springs by 4.00pm.

This is an exclusive trip for a minimum of four people. You get to spend the day with the people you choose so it is always really fun! It's a great trip to take with family and friends, an unforgettable team-building adventure for a work function or the ultimate stag do or hen’s party.
