Starting at Ohinepane, approx. 20km downriver from Taumarunui, the 125km trip begins at a leisurely pace with time to explore or relax. This also enables those who have little or no experience in a canoe or kayak time to become familiar with their boats. There is also plenty of time to explore some interesting historical sites close to the river, including the Nukunuku Museum and the Maraekowhai Niu Poles. As we progress further down the river, the farmland gives way to steep gorges and inaccessible native bush. Once past Whakahoro, we enter the main part of the spectacular Whanganui National Park. We visit many places of interest including, Kirikiriroa, one of many old Maori village sites, Tarepokiore, “The Whirlpool”, Tamatea Cave, John Coull Hut, Otumangu Landing, the Bridge to Nowhere, The “Drop Scene” and Puraroto Caves, on our way to historic Pipiriki.

We take care of all your camping equipment and passes and ensure that you are well informed and have a fantastic trip along the river with our knowledgeable guides. Please note that this tour is suitable for children 10 years or older with all children under 18 years old being accompanied by an adult.
