Sledging rapids, waves and the beautiful Kawarau River Queenstown

Sledging

Enjoy rapids, waves and the beautiful Kawarau River on a sturdy, easy to hold, very buoyant manoeuvrable sledge. The sledge keeps you more on the surface of the water than the bodyboards.

You just get a little more help from the sledge! 9km of pristine beautiful water, It’s a trip not to be missed.
