Welcome to River Rats, White Water Rafting New Zealand, Rotorua Kayaking and Adventure Specialists.
Based in Rotorua, River Rats Raft & Kayak have been offering quality adventures for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on a safety first culture and our attention to detail. We are also the first rafting company in New Zealand to be awarded the Qualmark Enviro Gold Award!
There’s something for everyone, from a gentle grade 2 scenic raft trip suitable for participants as young as 5, through to full on grade 5 action featuring the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall. There are also plenty of Rotorua Kayaking options available as freedom hire or a guided tour. Paddle the local lakes to a secluded beach or enjoy a hot water swim only accessible by boat.
Whether you are wanting to experience a family adventure or team building exercise, perfect for schools or conference groups, we have a range of Rafting & Kayaking options, other adventures, and more exhilarating activities in and around Rotorua to choose from.
