Sledging - $229.00 including GST per person

Serious Fun Riverboarding Limited runs Sledging trips daily on the mighty Kawarau River, between Wanaka and Queenstown, from November to April. Each trip is small and personalized. Experienced guides will teach you how to use your sledge and enjoy the river, but ultimately, YOU are in control!

Sledging is a great way to get up close and personal with the white waters of the Southern Lakes region.

The sledge is a sturdy board with handles easy to grip and hold on to. Your upper body is well protected while resting in the elbow groove, which is channelled to fit the body comfortably
Bring your swimmers, a towel and a sense of adventure!

Duration of the trip is 4.5 hours, with 1.5 – 2.5 hours on the river. Minimum age is 12 years old. No previous experience is required. A basic swimming ability, with confidence in the water, plus a sense of adventure are essential
