A unique sightseeing & river safari trip

Combine history with  just some good old fashioned family fun

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.
