Kaituna Cascades – Raft and Kayaking Expeditions
With possibly the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall, 6/7 metres (21 ft), the Kaituna River is a whitewater enthusiast’s dream come true.
Flowing through an extremely steep and narrow canyon, in 50 minutes you will paddle 14 awesome drops, including two waterfalls and some great rapids.
The river is only 15 minutes from Rotorua and with your pickup and return to Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park Rotorua, your rafting adventure takes only 2 – 2 ½ hours allowing you plenty of time for other sightseeing options.
