A packed day of Blue Pools Rafting and Hiking for an adventurous family looking to explore paths less traveled, 2020


This was a family with kids aged 9, 11 and 14 years who wanted to have some serious fun off the beaten track.

Our experience with children of a similar age is that they love swimming and the water, so we chose a journey of easy grade rafting combined with a flora-and-fauna hike, as a surefire winner.

The Makorora River and Blue Pools suggested themselves as perfect locations. The family were staying close by in Wanaka but, also, the river’s bouncy grade 2 classification means that its small rapids create a lot of splash without the same hazards found in rivers of a higher grade. Not only that, we’re the sole operators there for water activities, which gives the environment a real wilderness feel, despite its ready accessibility.
