Raft the legendary Buller River Earthquake Rapids, the section with the most whitewater in the breath taking Buller Gorge. Adventurers will experience plenty of white water action. Challenge yourself at the “swim” rapid, and after all the rapids, glide through deep pools and lush subtropical rain forest.
First Rafting Trip? No worries!! Your guides will give you full rafting safety instruction. Marty and Bruce are committed to making your river trip not only safe, but the best you’ll experience. Because the Buller River is a large volume wild river with no dams to regulate the flow, the rapid Grade 3 to 4 varies with rainfall. Ask us about the river flow when you book.
Wild Rivers Rafting, Ltd. is river-guide owned and operated. Top qualified guides Marty and Bruce have a combined 28+ years professional guiding on the mighty Buller River. Our rafting operation is audited and certified by Maritime New Zealand, and we are members of the New Zealand Rafting Association.
Wild Rivers Rafting reserves the right to cancel or postpone any trip for any reason (i. e adverse weather/river conditions).
We provide all river equipment/safety gear. After the trip, relax and enjoy a snack served with locally roasted Certified Organic Fairtrade coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
Bring towel, swimwear and a sense of adventure!
River time 2+ hours. Allow 4 hours total.
Meet your guides on SH 6 at the Iron Bridge between Murchison and Westport. We’ll transport you to the river trip start. Please see the map or ask us for directions.
