  • Booking

Looking for a Queenstown rafting or kayaking adventure for the whole family, then this is the family activity for you. Family Adventures are specialists in family/small group trips rafting and kayaking the upper reaches of the famous Shotover River, Queenstown, New Zealand.

Family Adventures will drive you through Skipper Canyon, a truly spectacular, awe inspiring road. Once off the main road and following the old gold mining trail there are excellent photo opportunities as you travel further into the backcountry, winding along the cliff face 100m above the Shotover River in places.

Family Adventures supply all equipment needed. Wetsuit boots to protect your feet, wetsuit or over pants, spray jacket with sealed collar and cuffs to help keep the water out, a buoyancy aid (both warm and great for rapid swims) and finally a helmet to finish off the outfit so you can do all this....

Not forgetting...

  • White Water Rafts (Hyside, self bailing, guided)
  • Inflatable Kayaks (Incept, self bailing, 2 person, self guided)
  • All equipment is independently audited and meets Maritime New Zealand code of compliance rule 80 part B.
  • Lightweight Paddles
  • Radio Telephones, First Aid Kits and Throw Ropes

We take to the water at the put in point made famous as “The Ford of Bruinen” in the Lord of the Rings and head down the grade 2 rapids in either guided rafts or inflatable kayaks*.

See gold mining relics and sheer canyon walls as we navigate the Shotover river, with photo stops, rapid swims and rock jumps.

*Inflatable kayaks available subject to river conditions and client suitability.

Morning and afternoon departures, suitable for 3 year olds to 103 year olds, older by arrangement
