Family Adventures raft the upper reaches of the famous Shotover River, Queenstown. Our trip is suitable for everyone from 3 years old as we raft on gentle grade 1 & 2 rapids only. Water confidence is not necessary.
We offer a unique sightseeing trip by bus into the famous Skippers Canyon - quite possibly the most spectacular drive in New Zealand! The views are astounding and the area is jam-packed with history. We get even further into the backcountry as we float by raft on the Upper Shotover River. You may recognise our put-in-point as "The Ford of Bruinen" from the Lord of The Rings movie!
We cater for everyone especially people looking for a scenic and non-threatening unique river experience. We can also offer a range of activities such as a downhill guided mountain bike, a longer full-day trip and a variety of team building options for corporate groups. We are the only raft company in Queenstown licensed to carry children under 13 years
