The Rangitikei River Like You Have Never Seen It Before

Wanting to share some of what we think is the best of the Rangitikei River, we have created this new trip, the Epic Rangitikei.

This 3 day trip incorporates many of the highlights of our other rafting trips, both day and multi day trips.

These highlights include beautiful scenic sections of river with dramatic scenery, plus pretty (and comfortable) river side campsites.

However, what really sets this trip apart, is that it also includes rafting one of the best commercial sections of whitewater in New Zealand, the Grade 5 section of the Rangitikei River.

  • All Food – 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 3 dinners
  • Three fantastic days on the river

“Only the melody sings here the melody of a river running over rocks, tugging at the bank, seeking its way. You cannot see far, limited by the canyons contour, but you can see forever.”

After all the planning and preparation for a journey on a wild river, nothing compares to the moment of launch.

The weariness of contouring your life to fit the schedule of work and home are lifted from your shoulders in a moment – replaced by the natural sense of flowing water.

The first dip of the paddle draws on the primal energy of the river. Harsh edges fade; your mind is filled with a softer sensual connection to the companions to whom you have returned the water, creatures, trees, a breeze, the clean wilderness air.

Only the melody sings here the melody of a river running over rocks, tugging at the bank, seeking its way. You cannot see far, limited by the canyons contour, but you can see forever.

The longer you float, the more you see; you become sensitised to the subtleties. Your soul expands.

Existence is defined only by the natural world of a wild river.

In camp, warmed by the fire, filled by a hot meal, you share the night with friends and loved ones.

Darkness settles in the canyon. Only the faint shimmer of starlight reflected on the flowing waters defines the liquid pathway that has brought you here and calls you back, again….and again.
