Rafting - Shotover River


Latest Questions about Rafting - Shotover River

What is the difference between you and the other raftcompanies that have rafting in shotover river?


We send our customers to a company called Challenge Rafting who along with Queenstown Rafting are the only two companies operating rafting on the Shotover River in Queenstown. In fact, they use the same guides and rafts so in essence there is really only one rafting operator on the Shotover River. Many years ago there were a number of rafting companies competing on the Shotover River however over the years for safety and logistics these were all amalgamated into one operation.

There is one other company called Family Rafting that operate gentle kid friendly rafting on the upper Shotover River but this is not on white water and its on a different part of the river. You have the option of booking a heli flight into the start of the rafting (helirafting) or to take the bus into Skippers Canyon (straight rafting).
