This package consists of 3 activities to make an adreneline fueled day in Rotorua:

The activities are operated by two separate companies .

White Water Rafting – operated by River Rat Raft and Kayak

The Kaituna River has long been the home of thrill seekers looking for a whitewater adrenaline rush.

After meeting your guide, getting ready in wetsuits and life jackets you are off for an adventure down the beautiful Kaituna river gorge, with 3 rushing waterfalls, 14 rapids rapids and beautiful streches of gorge enclosed flatwater, this is a world class rafting adventure. Its reputed to have the worlds highest commercially rated water fall – the Tutea Falls at a full 7 metre drop. Time on the river is about 1.5 hours but allow 3 hours from check in, preparation and transfers to the river.

Driving Experiences – operated by Off Road NZ

Raceline Karting

Feel the need for speed as you jump into the driver’s seat for an exhilarating Raceline Karting experience. Concentration, skills and a big dose of brave, make the most of the world-class karting track and give it all you’ve got. 1.2 km long with 11 corners, 6 hairpin turns 150 metre straight and speeds up to 100km/h this will thrill you.

Test your limits in a safe and controlled environment, at Rotorua’s International Kartsport Raceway high up on the Mamaku Plateau, with top of the line Sodi 390cc 4 stroke karts imported from France. Off Road NZ is the only place in the country where you can race these incredible, state of the art machines on the same track as the professional racers.

Geared up and ready to roll, experience the rush of G-Force as you take on hairpin corners and flowing curves with speeds reaching close to 100 km/hour on the 150-metre straight. Go for a personal best or race each other to beat the clock and cross that finish line.

This experience is the Arrive and Drive Package which gives you 10 minutes of racing time on the track each.

If you love it (which you will) you can upgrade to more tack time when you are there.

Self Drive 4×4

The ultimate 4WD adventure that lets you take the wheel. Buckle up and take on an off-road adventure deep into native New Zealand forest. Back in the early 1900s the area Off Road NZ is set on, was used by logging pioneers who logged our native timbers until it was banned in the 1970s. The tracks that the pioneers used back then are the same tracks that you will be diving on, on this adventure.  Rugged and remote, the trail is full of unknowns with plenty of thrills along the way.

With instruction from a professional guide, you can tackle terrain made for 4WD adventures. Tight, twisting bends, deep muddy holes, a seven metre-high luge, steep climbs and thrilling descents – this is uncharted territory with challenges that come thick and fast. This activity lasts approximately 1 hour.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Having done all these activities we can say if you are after an adventurous day – this is hard to beat. The Raceline Karting is addictive – you want to do more, the 4WD is a great challenge as it relies on you to make the move and drive the vehicle and the rafting is shear excitement and joy and very high heart beats. As a side note if this is all too much for you to stomach on one day you can do the activities separately on different days anytime in the validity period.
