Rafting Kaituna04:11 PM on Thu 15 Dec 2011

Backpacking through New Zealand can offer some amazing experiences, one of them being White Water Rafting..


The upper section of the Kaituna River offers some of the best white-water kayaking and rafting in the world..The Kaituna River is located in the bay of plenty region on the North Island.

On Friday , I took a trip down to Base Backpackers Rotorua and went on an AWESOME white water rafting adventure down the Kaituna River! An awesome team at the Kaitiaki Base guided us!  A very adrenalin packed adventure!

The history of the Kaituna River itself is very inspiring, the way we do a ‘Karakia’ (Prayer said in Te Reo) before entering the river is an awesome spiritual insight to the history of such a beautiful place!

Being surrounded by such untouched nature makes you feel speechless! So capsizing in such a beautiful place isn’t so bad haha

Lots of laughs, smiles, and adrenaline feelings to be had!

A place anyone would be privileged to go.

Come see us at Base Auckland Travel and Book your next adventure ;)

Happy Travels
