Whanganui River

A Canoe Trip through the spectacular Whanganui National is a great way to unwind away from the pressures of everyday life.

Just imagine a holiday away from it all, no cell phones, no television, no shops, no traffic. Just you and your partner, an open Canadian canoe, a few books maybe, and some friends to share in this unique experience. The most popular journey is the five day Whanganui experience.

A vast portion of the stretch we cover is almost inaccessible from land. This is the type of adventure that all New Zealanders and visitors alike should experience at least once in their life. Words alone cannot describe its special magic.
