My family including 3 children (10, 12 and 12) spent a couple of weeks in the South Island. We were mostly around the Queenstown area but decided to save our day of rafting for the Hurunui River from Christchurch and are so glad that we did. The river is absolutely beautiful with a good mix of exciting sections and relaxing sections. We were lucky to get a sunny day so we also took the chance for a swim - pretty cold! Vinny was an excellent guide and quickly had us handling the raft with reasonable proficiency, making it a joy to take on the rapids. Our family had a great day.
"A great family adventure"
We went on a day trip rafting the hurunui river and we loved it! Our Guides were responsible, dedicated and proficient. Still they had a good sence of humor and they made our experience with them a rewarding one. The White Water Rafting was full of adventure, adrenalin and enjoyment and was captured not only in our memory but in photos and films the company took. We can highly recommend Southern White Water Limited to make the most of your time in and around Christchurch, New Zealand. Thanks to Simon, Eva and Vinni 😀
"Amazing and fun experience
I was pretty rattled when the boys rolled me out of bed at 6am on the annual lads trip to hit the bush. I couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously one of the best experiences to date. Recommend to anyone. So many variations on what to do (hiking, fishing, hunting, rafting, bush tucker, camping tips) and the guides were amazing. We did the 3 day adventure. Vin (the owner) even organised a game of cricket for us. Get around it!
"one of the best weekends of my life
I was very fortunate to partake in a 3 Day Rafting experience with a possibility to hunt and fish. Very professionally run organization which found us drifting down untouched rivers where very few have had the chance to venture. Meals were well above bushman quality tucker which kept us fueled for the deer stalking. Vinny and his crew, full of banter and laughs made fantastic hosts. It all kicked off from the way we marinated our steaks using boom sticks and the enjoyment didn't stop 😉
