Nestled deep in the South Pacific, New Zealand offers the visitor a sparkling, clean environment and a freedom loving, friendly people who will make you feel welcome on your travels. New Zealand is a small country with an even smaller population (3.1 million) but offers an outdoor paradise for white water rafting and kayaking rivaling Colorado whitewater rafting. With space to relax, stretch out on deserted beaches and soak in magnificent scenery beneath brilliant, blue skies, New Zealand can’t be topped. From the majestic fjords and Alps on the South Island to the native forests and white sandy bays of the North Island, this is both a land of awesome beauty and of contrasts.

Come and see New Zealand the best way — with the personable and experienced guides of Dvorak Expeditions and our associates. We offer both white water rafting and kayaking expeditions on seven to eleven New Zealand rivers over seventeen days.

Colorado whitewater rafting pales in comparison to those in New Zealand. One river flows out of mountains so remote that few have walked there and fewer still have paddled – One twists and rages through a stretch of the most awesome whitewater in the country at a place known as “The Chinese dogleg.” – Another blasts through an historic mining tunnel, exploding into a Class IV rapid as it comes back to daylight. The rivers of New Zealand, are full of enough whitewater and scenery to fill a lifetime.

Nepal White Water Rafting – Karnali River



Rafting | Kayaking | Treking 
14-18 days  
River Class III-IV

In the tiny kingdom of Nepal, the same beautiful mountain ranges which draw climbers from around the world, are the source of an incredible variety of white water rafting challenges for paddlers. Situated between India and China, Nepal is only 100 miles wide, but rises from sea level on the Gangetic Plain to over 29,000 feet at the top of Mt. Everest. High-country Nepalese rivers are some of the mightiest among white water flows all over the world. Very different from Colorado whitewater rafting, the diverse geography of this small country encompasses many ecological extremes – from high altitude peaks – to steamy lowland jungles makes whitewater a rafting an experience to remember.

Karnali River, “The Western Bend”, is a gem, with some of the prettiest canyons and jungle scenery available in Nepal and is the largest and longest river in the country. In high water, the Karnali River is a serious commitment for white water rafters, combining huge hydraulic flows and more manageable Class IV rapids in a remote location. This unique trip includes time in Kathmandu, travel by rickshaw and bus to Surkhet, a two-day trek through forests and bamboo groves with some lung busting climbs to the Karnali River, seven days on the river and a variety of side activities including elephant safaris, canoeing with the Gangetic Dolphins, jungle walks and bird watching.
