Backpacking through New Zealand can offer some amazing experiences, one of them being White Water Rafting..
The upper section of the Kaituna River offers some of the best white-water kayaking and rafting in the world..The Kaituna River is located in the bay of plenty region on the North Island.
On Friday , I took a trip down to Base Backpackers Rotorua and went on an AWESOME white water rafting adventure down the Kaituna River! An awesome team at the Kaitiaki Base guided us! A very adrenalin packed adventure!
The history of the Kaituna River itself is very inspiring, the way we do a ‘Karakia’ (Prayer said in Te Reo) before entering the river is an awesome spiritual insight to the history of such a beautiful place!
Being surrounded by such untouched nature makes you feel speechless! So capsizing in such a beautiful place isn’t so bad haha
Lots of laughs, smiles, and adrenaline feelings to be had!
A place anyone would be privileged to go.
Come see us at Base Auckland Travel and Book your next adventure ;)
