Kaitiaki Adventures

Sledge with Rotoruaโ€™s White Water Sledging Specialists

Kaitiaki Adventures are the New Zealand sledging originals. In the late 70’s, some keen Frenchmen were lying on bags full of life jackets and polystyrene, floating down stream. In 1981 the first water sledge was built (hydro speed or hydro speeding). It’s now a professional sport in Europe and gaining popularity around the world including New Zealand.

See what our guests have to say about sledging by reading our reviews page.
