Rotorua Visitor Guide - - News -

Kaitiaki Ad­ven­tures is lo­cally owned and op­er­ated, spe­cial­iz­ing in white­wa­ter raft­ing and sledg­ing down the amaz­ing wa­ter­ways sur­round­ing Ro­torua, pri­mar­ily on the iconic Okere sec­tion of the Kaituna Roiver and the pow­er­ful Wairoa River.

Kaitiaki Ad­ven­tures are the only cul­tur­ally in­fused white wa­ter spe­cial­ists in­cor­po­rat­ing Maori cul­ture into each in­di­vid­ual ex­cur­sion, giv­ing vis­i­tors a true, unique to New Zealand ex­pe­ri­ence.

Raft­ing from the very top of the Grade 5 Okere sec­tion of the Kaituna, Kaitiaki Ad­ven­tures en­sure that safety is of the ut­most im­por­tance with mul­ti­ple safety brief­ings de­liv­ered in their unique Kaitiaki way, en­sur­ing each cus­tomer feels safe be­fore em­bark­ing on their Grade 5 Raft­ing ad­ven­ture.

At the wa­ters edge, they de­liver a Maori Karakia (prayer) gifted to them from the lo­cal Maori peo­ple of Ngati Hin­erangi and Ngati Hinekuri, where

they pay re­spect to the en­vi­ron­ment and the lo­cal peo­ple whose home was based around the river.

Once on the river, vis­i­tors are guided through 14 rapids, 3 wa­ter­falls and the amaz­ing 7 me­tre high Tutea Falls – the world’s high­est com­mer­cially rafted wa­ter­fall.

Kaitiaki Ad­ven­tures are New Zealand’s orig­i­nal white wa­ter sledg­ing spe­cial­ists, since 1989 and there is some­thing for every­one on this beau­ti­ful scenic ex­cur­sion.

Play holes and awe­some rapids to ne­go­ti­ate your­way through as you are in charge of your own ves­sel. Take the river on at eye level and pro­pel your­self through the wa­ter by the flip­pers on your feet. Qual­i­fied guides are there to en­cour­age, mo­ti­vate and help you where nec­es­sary. This is a white­wa­ter adren­a­line junkies dream down a Grade 3 sec­tion of the Kaituna River.

Trans­port is in­cluded to and from Ro­torua cen­tral ac­com­mo­da­tion and from the city’s in­for­ma­tion cen­tre.
