Getaway Summary
Location: Rotorua, Bay of Plenty
2 nights/3 days
Accommodation in 4* hotel with breakfast
3h Kaituna River Sledging

Grade 3 Kaituna River Sledging

Come eye to eye with the Kaituna River and its rapids. 

River sledging is different than anything you’ve done before. Geared up with a life vest, fins and a river sledge you negotiate through the grade 3 rapids of the Kaituna River Rotorua.

In between the rapids, there’s enough time to splash around in play holes and to just float peacefully and take in the pre-historic looking native bush.

And in case you were wondering: No, you won’t drop down the giant waterfall as they do at the rafting. It won’t mean any fewer thrills, though.

The tour is operated by Kaitiaki Adventures. They will come and pick you up at your accommodation and look after you for this 3-hour trip.

Your Rotorua Accommodation

Only a 5-minute stroll from Rotorua town centre, the 4* hotel Jet Park in Rotorua is a true home away from home. The rooms are cosy and comfy!

Families will love the designated family rooms and play areas for the little ones. 

There’s an outdoor pool for the swimmers and a complimentary spa bath. The bikers among you will appreciate the bike washing station and a locked bike storage room.

The package includes an extraordinary continental breakfast buffet (cooked breakfast is additional but you won’t go hungry eating from the buffet, promise). 

Rotorua town centre, Eat Street, the waterfront and Polynesian Spa can easily be reached on foot and attractions like Te Puia, Kuirau Park, Zorb and the Skyline Luge are only a quick drive from Jet Park Rotorua.
