The EPIC Rangitikei Rafting Trip and how it came to be…

One of our long-term senior raft guides that many of you will know, Derek, came to us with an idea last Summer. Derek is an ‘ideas man’; while he is out on the river he is always thinking about the next ‘big thing’ and how we can be improving as a company.

Derek spends most of his working days rafting the Grade 5 white water section of the Rangitikei River but occasionally also the odd multi day rafting trip as well. When he came to us with the idea of combining the Grade 5 white water rafting into an EPIC multi day rafting trip, we couldn’t believe we hadn’t thought of it before!

Since then we, the “computer nerds” as the raft guides so affectionately term us, have been working on the best way to get this raft trip up and running. So, hats off to you Derek, you river legend.

Our first new rafting trip in a while, combines all of the best aspects of the amazing Rangitikei River. This trip combines beautiful scenic sections of the river with dramatic scenery, plus pretty (and comfortable) river side campsites, all inclusive. 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.

If this sounds like you perfect adventure trip, then please join us for the launch trip of the first ever Epic Rangitikei.

Alternatively, if you can’t make the launch date, the Epic Rangitikei rafting trip season will be running from 1 November 2017 to 15 April 2018, with a similar date range the following summer.
