Buller River White Water Rafting and Kayak Trips
An abundance of pristine, uncrowded wilderness makes the West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand the white water adventurer‘s dream destination.
Come join us in Murchison, the white water capital of New Zealand.
We offer rafting and kayaking trips that will enable people from all walks of life to discover the adventure of whitewater river travel in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. Based in an area known to be one of the wettest in the world, this gives us the chance to get out to many areas in the search of that Ultimate Descent. Since we are out there in the wilderness daily, we like to promote the appreciation and conservation of the ecosystems which give the Nelson, Buller and West Coast regions their uniqueness.
Snow capped mountain peaks, lush rain forest and stunning river valleys provide the backdrops for a raft of activities. One of the more unique and exciting ways to experience this great wilderness is by rafting down a river.
RAFTING the ULTIMATE whitewater
The Buller and West Coast are regarded as New Zealand’s premier white water regions.
Almost every traveler exploring the South Island of New Zealand on their way from Christchurch or the West Coast up to Nelson, or going the other way, passes through Murchison, not just a great place to stop for gas and a rest.
The Murchison area hosts a secret not everyone knows about – exhilarating white water and rugged West Coast scenery which make rafting the Buller Gorge an adventure not to miss.
Join us on a raft journey through spectacular granite canyons for what is undoubtedly the Buller’s best rafting trip. “With the emphasis on fun and participation” Buller Gorge Rafting could well be the most enjoyable activity on your holiday in New Zealand.
