Beautiful Grey River Rafting Trip

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

It was great to get out of the office and join a young couple from South Auckland for a weekend rafting on the Grey River. Hidden Valleys owner Southy was on the gear raft and Swedish Sophie was our rafting guide for the trip. The weather played its part during the day with the rain only arriving during the night.

Tranquil moments rafting in the Gentle Annie Gorge

There are many outstanding features on this river rafting journey – the spectacular lush native rain forest, large boulders to manoeuvre around, deep pools of crystal clear water, fishing, and the stunning Gentle Annie Gorge. I really enjoyed the whole experience, from the rafting to setting up camp, organising dinner, watching Southy cook another feast over the open fire, and chilling by the fire with a glass of wine. In the end even the sandflies didn’t get the better of me!

Our clients Anna and Michael made the trip seem like a breeze as they were always willing to pitch-in and help out, awesome! I hope they had as great a time as I did.

Thanks Southy!
