On the Tongariro River near Turangi on the North Island - that's where the action is!
With our intrepid travellers/friends/co-rafters, we set off for a couple of hours on the water. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
...little did we know what we were in for.
Carry the raft - big one too - into the water and then get some instruction.
Pretty quiet really - at this stage anyway. Beautiful scenery.
Janice got a bit excited because she could see some white water.
Have no fear team, our trusty guide told us. There are 64 rapids altogether.
The adrenaline was pumpin' big time!
I think Janice got her moneysworth. Tongariro River Rafting excellent mob to raft with.
Thanks Ryan and the team. I just don't know how somebody didn't fall out because we certainly came pretty close on a number of occasions. Does it look like we had fun?
