Whitewater rafting

Today we went white water rafting on the Shotover river. It was an hours drive over Coronet Peak which is 1,187 metres tall, Queenstown where we left from is 310 metres above sea level.

We went into the river where they filmed part of Lord of the rings.

On the river there was rapids that were very bumpy, at the end of the rafting we got to do a rock jump into the water, I was nervous on the rock, but once I’d jumped in all I could think about was how cold it was!
