Experience some of the greatest whitewater journeys and incredible scenery on earth! This rafting trip offers an unrivalled white water rafting experience, whether you're a novice or highly experienced. The Mitta has carved its path into the valley floor over millions of years. Set in the Alpine National Park and surrounded by an ancient eucalypt forest, the river has been home to known indigenous tribes and the prospectors of the late 19th century.
You'll start your journey with 10kms of gentle yet challenging rafting, quickly developing key skills. You'll head on that day, progressing, progressing, until you're tackling 'The Rapid of Truth', 'Pinball' and 'Deception Bend'. After a bit of practice, you'll be a pro! Next is the evening, were you'll get the chance to relax in a lovely country town. Your comfortable accommodation is included in the package, and you'll have the chance in town to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, wholesome local food and wine and the great Aussie humour.
Day 2 and you're in the thick of it! The Mitta Mitta Gorge boasts one of the highest put-ins in Australia at 680m in elevation. This river packs a serious punch. The continuous grade 2-3 rapids make for a wild descent off the Great Divide. Plummeting between intricate rock formations for 18km will certainly ensure your adrenalin hits overdrive. Youll tackle grade 2 and 3 rapids such as Graveyard, the S bend, Bump and Grind, Big Stopper, Dislocation, The Waterfall and The Gobbler. You'll be given time in between to explore miners' diggings and to relax amongst the scenery!
