Heli- Rafting

Allow 5 hours

Experience seldom explored parts of the Clarence River Reserve in a half day trip from both above and on top.

This  half day heli-rafting tour starts at our helipads in Kaikōura then heads deep into the Clarence river reserve where you will get to experience parts of the Clarence river seldom explored. 

After weaving your way through the mountains the helicopter will then make a landing beside the river bed where you will meet your raft guides, who will guide you through the next part of your adventure.

Following natures own highway, the rafting trip promises picturesque and ever changing scenery as you float on down through the gaping valleys of the reserve. 

Along the way you will get to experience gentle but fun grade 2 rapids, making it a perfect adventure for any family or group of friends of all ability. 

After a 2 to 3 hour rafting journey through the wilderness you will arrive at Forbes hut where there will will be a delicious and well deserved lunch spread waiting for you before your return flight up the river and back through the mountains. 

Your experience ends back at the helipad where our complimentary transport is waiting to take you back to town or to your hotel.
