Several companies offer whitewater rafting trips around Rotorua with the Kaituna, Rangitaiki and Wairoa Rivers being the most popular. The Rangitaki boasts grade four rapids and is perhaps the most scenic option, but the Wairoa and especially the Kaituna River offers grade five rapids with more excitement. The Kaituna River features the legendary Tutea Falls with its massive seven-metre drop, which is claimed to be the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall.

Rafting trips cost $85–109 on the Kaituna River, $110–140 on the Rangitaiki River and $115–137.50 on the Wairoa River.

The main rafting companies operating in Rotorua are Kaitaiki Adventures, Raftabout, River Rats, Rotorua Rafting and Wet ‘n’ Wild.
