Landsborough River

West Coast Whitewater rafting – Grade 3-5

The Landsborough is a great combination of breathtaking scenery with numerous exhilarating rapids. It is a truly remote, seldom-rafted river with huge, snow-capped mountains as its backdrop. The rapids vary greatly from insignificant Grade 2 through to Grade 4, which requires good manoeuvring and team work. For the more timid rafter, there is the option to walk around and watch your team mates or family navigate their way through the rapids!

“In addition to Southy’s stories around the camp fire and the great food (generally containing game that Southy has shot and cured himself), Southy and his team at Hidden Valleys’ have a talent for organising a custom made trip at exactly the right sort of level for clients. His trips have more than enough excitement and adrenaline rushes and you get to thinking that Southy and the boys are part of your team until you realise that they are doing most of the hard work around the camp! Southy’s knowledge of the New Zealand outdoors, rivers and game is second to none, and his ability to organise an unforgettable adventure while at the same time keeping you safe is uncanny.”
