Multi-award winning Kaitiaki Adventures is passionate about continually providing world-class adventure tourism experiences in Rotorua.

Kaitiaki Adventures is proudly local, having an unmatched safety focus, and striving to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience by highly trained and professional staff.
If you’ve experienced Skyline Rotorua’s Luge and if you love playing in the water, you must try sledging – it’s basically luging down a river, propelled only by the flippers on your feet and the Kaituna’s current. This super-fun, three-hour adventure is based in the Kahikatea Forest along the lake edge of Rotorua. Here you’ll sledge on the Grade 3 Okere section of the Kaituna River, mixing the New Zealand native scenery with eddies and rapids.
Kaitiaki Adventures is open 7 days a week and also offers:
