Rafting - Shotover River


Latest Questions about Rafting - Shotover River

Wondering if you could tell me whether there is any whitewater rafting available for 8 & 10 year olds? They've rafted before in Nepal and loved it - both great swimmers.

Many thanks


Hi Kirsty. Unfortunately the minimum age for white water rafting in New Zealand is 13 years old. There is another company in Queenstown that operates family rafting in very gentle rapids but it might be a bit tame for your kids if they are strong in the water.

Otherwise there is another option called Riversurfing. Its more intense than rafting and they do allow kids over 7 years old to do this with parental consent. They get their own guide and only up to 2 kids under 12 can go on any one trip.
