Queenstown Serious Fun Riverboarding - Sledging

Details

Sledge 9km of New Zealand’s best white water on a sturdy buoyant board that is easy to manoeuvre.

Sledge 7 km of grade 2 to 3 white water on special river purpose boards.  

Sturdy, easy to hold on to, very buoyant and highly manoeuvrable, the sledge keeps you slightly more above the water than bodyboards.  This is an action packed white water adventure for true water lovers.

You will start the trip in a secret calm eddy after an introduction on the basic sledging techniques.  Here you must perform the minimum skills required to experience this trip.

As we head to the main flow, hold on tight and feel the power of the river as adrenaline kicks in. Ride fast flowing rapids, blast through waves, spin on giant whirlpools and try wicked rock jumps. 

There is a calm final section that allows you to take in the scenery and chill.
