“Rafting the Ultimate New Zealand whitewater”

Buller Gorge Rafting

Buller gorge rafting New ZealandThe Buller and West Coast are regarded as New Zealand’s premier white water rafting regions. Not only do they contain some of the most exciting, remote and scenic rivers in the country, but also their proximity to the Southern Alps means they have plenty of water for rafting all year round.

Almost every traveler exploring the South Island of New Zealand on their way from Christchurch or the West Coast up to Nelson, or vice versa, 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.

Ariki Rapid on the Buller Gorge

Join us on a raft journey through spectacular pink 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. Being the only company to run the Ariki falls section on the Buller (our favorite run), giving us the luxury of being the only ones out on the water. That’s right, just us and maybe the odd adventurous kayaker in the Buller river’s untamable wilderness.

We provide all the necessary equipment to keep you safe, snug and warm on the river.  You can also enjoy the facilities at our base such as toilets, changing rooms and some fresh home made baking. Enjoy a cuppa while watching the photos taken during your trip, by our safety / support driver. For the Buller Gorge Rafting tour, we shout you, your trip photos! That’s right, your trip photos are free! All daily tours start from our base in Murchison, from there we provide all transport to and from the river.
