You want to go down a wilderness river with a group of friends or your family on a river trip, but where do you get hold of a suitable whitewater raft and/or an inflatable kayak?

Commercial trips are great, taking care of everything, but it does come with a cost.  You looked at buying your own raft, but it costs too much for the use it would get and you have nowhere to store it. 


We offer you the means to plan and enjoy a private whitewater raft or inflatable kayak trip on a New Zealand river.  Rafts PLUS IKs makes for a fun trip for a wide range of people.
