Family Adventures specialise in soft adventure trips, rafting the upper reaches of the famous Shotover River near Queenstown. Our trip by bus and raft is a unique way to experience the wonderful backcountry we have close by in Queenstown, and is suitable for everyone from 3 years upwards. 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 variety of team building options for corporate groups. We are the only white-water rafting company in Queenstown licensed to carry children under 13 years old on the Shotover River.
