Half Day Family Adventures Rafting - Family Adventures
Family Adventures specialise in soft adventure trips, rafting on the famous Shotover River near Queenstown. Our trip is a unique way to experience the wonderful backcountry we have close by in Queenstown, and is suitable for everyone from 3yrs upwards.
The adventure begins with a drive into Skippers Canyon.
The trip kicks off with a 45 minute drive into the famous Skippers Canyon.
The Road through Skippers Canyon is quite possibly the most spectacular & scenic drive in New Zealand.
The views are astounding and the area is packed with history and gold mining relics.
Our knowledgeable guides will enthralled you with tales from the colourful gold mining last.
At Family Adventures we kit you out with all the gear you’ll need from the ground up.
Wetsuit boots to protect your feet, wetsuit or overpants, spray jacket with sealed collar and cuffs to help keep the water out, fleece & a buoyancy aid (both warm and great for rapid swims) and finally a helmet to finish off the outfit so you can do this. (A good tip is to wear your swimsuit under your clothing, it makes getting changed into your wetsuit at our Pipeline base easier and quicker).
Off we go! We take to the water at the "Ford of Bruinen" made famous by the Lord of the Rings movie.
We then enjoy a gentle scenic excursion packed with fun for everyone from 3 - 103 (older by arrangement).
We float down gentle Grade 1 & 2 rapids only (takes approx 1-1.5 hours on the river).
On the way see gold mining relics, sheer canyon walls and get to play on the odd rock jump.
