Stop At: Rotorua Rafting, 761 State Highway 33, Rotorua 3074 New Zealand

Experience the best rafting section in New Zealand on this exciting 3-hour white water rafting excursion from Rotorua. After getting a brief instructional, including safety procedures and some tips, hop on the raft and get ready for some adrenaline-flowing fun. Float down a deep canyon on the Kaituna River, which is lined with beautiful New Zealand native flora. Admire the subtropical scenery while flowing down the river, which starts off with some easy white water. Then continue on where the river builds in difficulty. Eventually, float right under a couple of majestic waterfalls. 

Take the opportunity to jump in the river off a 10-foot (3-metre) cliff and marvel at the 23-foot (7-metre) Tutea Falls. Then head down the river for more action-packed rafting. 

The tour concludes when you're dropped off at your hotel.
