What to Expect
Our sweet Rafting Base in Okere Falls is in an awesome sunny location, surrounded by a scenic reserve and backs onto the shores of the Kaituna. We are the closest and most accessible company to the river.

We are located at 18 Okere Falls Road, Rotorua, New Zealand. It's a short 15min drive from Rotorua Township, & just 10mins from Rotorua Airport. 

Okere Falls has a beautiful short walk through the scenic reserve which you can view many rapids of The Kaituna River, there is even an amazing cafe around the corner. This makes for a great half day trip out to this stunning region of Rotorua.
