"To us, trips feel like we're out doing the things we love with a group of good friends and that's exactly how it is at Hidden Valleys."

Rakaia River Rafting Day Trip

One of the most appealing aspects of the Rakaia River Grade 2 trips is the scenic float, which makes the trips accessible and suitable for nearly everyone.

Once you’ve packed your picnic to share with friends and family, you’ll rendezvous at the Upper Rakaia bridge on Highway 72. From here, you’ll be whisked several kilometres above the Gorge by one of the local jet boat operators.

After the speed rush of the trip up, the big, powerful river allows us to drift our way slowly back to the bridge, as we take in the scenery from a totally different perspective.

This is not a white water trip as such, but a fabulous opportunity to share nature’s best with friends and family.


Suitable for anyone
