Rising in the Kaingaroa and Uruwera forests, the Rangitāiki gathers strength before cutting through the impressive gorge. Come explore this natural wonder with us by riverbug. Ride the waves, marvel at cascading waterfalls, and hear the local stories. This is an “off the beaten track“ wilderness experience and it's not uncommon to be the only party on the river.  

Our adventure starts at the impressive Aniwhenua Falls, where do our safety briefing and practice in the calm water below the falls before heading off down river. We'll guide you through the gorge, showing you how to navigate in whitewater, sharing some of the local kōrero (stories) in the calm bits and showing you a few cool tricks along the way! After the tour enjoy a hearty picnic snack by with us by the river. 

Our Action Bug tour is totally awesome experience to share with friends and family, and a great outing for schools and other groups .
