The trip begins at our boathouse where our friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment and information needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers. We provide wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets and rafting booties. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm sweater or fleece and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humour and adventure!

Once we are all changed we will then drive you to into the East valley to our rafting put in. Our trip leader will give a safety brief with all of the relative safety information needed to get the most out of your trip.

Depending on the water levels we will also stop for some cliff jumping for those that feel they need a little more excitement.The bus will meet us at the take out where steaming bowls of hot soup are waiting. After a short 20 minute ride back to the base you can unwind in our hot pools.
