This is a pic from when I went to New Zealand last year and went white water rafting in Roturua... it was so much fun, yes, I am in that raft! The waterfall is 7m high... I ended up falling out of the raft which was fun/slightly scary.

New Zealand is absolutely stunning, I took hundreds of photos when I was over there.

wow that looks like fun! You fell out? Oh my god that is scary. I have never been rafting before. I am a little scared of hights and that looks a little high and dangerour for me.

I will try the lazy river rafting first.

What a blast! We go white water rafting every summer. We started out at a Class 1, and did that for a few years. And now years later, we've worked our way up to a Class 5, with mandatory helmets. It's a blast! A true adrenaline rush, to say the least. I've never fallen out...but there's always a first. It is definately NOT for everyone.

Thanks for sharing this awesome pic!

hahha, the way this title is worded I was imagining you rafting down the main street of Rotovegas!

What river is that?

It looks way scary. :)

Holy Cow!!
I've been on trips like this (Class 4/5) here in the USA but I've never heard of a guided trip taking a drop like that!
But then we in the USA like to sue people when we get hurt, so that is probably why no guides here would take inexperienced rafters over such a drop.

Anyway, amazing photo! I'm glad you had fun. Rafting is a blast!

I it was class 4 or 5 can't remember. Apparently it's the highest waterfall you can raft over commercially in the world or something like that...

I can't remember what river it was... I just remember we drove in this really dodgy mini bus with no airconditioning about 20 mins out of Rotorua? But it was wicked fun! Even the falling out bit! It was funny, all the girls fell out of the raft and the guys managed to stay in and had to rescue us... except I got lots of water up my nose...

Oh I went tumo tumo tubing in the Waitomo Caves, it was fun... I got covered in bruises through from scrambling over the rocks.

I have more pics from NZ here.

www.flickr.com . . .

I'm sure you can do rafting in England to whoever asked, when I was looking at travel stuff I'm sure I saw it mentioned, I just can't remember where.
