Our rafting trips aren’t just about fun, excitement and the adventure of white water rafting. You will experience the best white water rivers in the world (most scenic, most exciting, or both) as well as “5 star” campsites (or we prefer to say “one million stars”) delicious food accompanied by apres-rafting drinks, and entertaining professional raft guides.
We take you on a different kind of rafting journey… there are no cars here, no stress and no cell phones. There is just the rhythm of the river, the soothing sound of the water to send you off to sleep, and the warm sun to kiss you awake in the morning. Be warned: Rafting with us may even change your life.

The New Zealand trip with Water by Nature was a highlight of my life. Hamish, being a native Kiwi carried us to some unique and gorgeous locations that were off the beaten path. We did a river trip, snorkeling, stayed on a boat overnight, went right into the fjords. On one day we swam with wild dolphins. Hamish was the perfect host and catered to our wants. I would recommend this trip to ANYONE. In fact, I might just go again.
I've completed two river trips with Water by Nature: the Zambezi and the Cotahuasi. Both were truly exceptional trips, with highly professional leaders, great crews, wonderful food, jaw-dropping scenery, and world-class whitewater. I've traveled all over the world--mostly to exotic places--with a wide variety of companies but have never found a single one that did their job any better.
One EPIC trip checked off my Bucket List. Water By Nature owned by Hamish McMaster has reached a new zenith in adventure travel. My trip to PNG was nothing less than extraordinary. We were completely prepared for the unexpected and were not disappointed. The whitewater was spectacular, the villagers were peaceful and plentiful, and the scenery changed from hour to hour. The second part of the trip was a sea kayaking expedition. The ocean was Azure blue and 85-90 degrees. There aren't enough superlatives to describe this odyssey.
This was a bit different to the normal trips I take, in that it was a multi- river trip, using various locations as a base. It was awesome - the rivers did not disappoint and culminated with Cherry Creek, where we needed to do a brief swim test before they would let us run the rapids. We stayed in some great hotels, met some brilliant people and visited Yosemite National Park. This trip packs a lot in, but you never feel rushed..!!

Before the pandemic in 2019 just under 24% of our guests were solo travellers, however last year that leapt to over 41%. Why the big […]
We often get asked what the most adventurous rafting trips are that we offer. As a company we have a pedigree searching out and running these off-the-beaten-track destinations, often when others won’t. Why don’t they run them? Because getting rafts, guides and gear to these destinations is often very challenging, but in our experience, the […]
