Canoe Safaris Base is in Ohakune. You can leave your car in our Private off street car park and we shuttle you to and from the Whanganui River.  Most of our guests also do choose to stay with us at our onsite Ohakune motel for Pre and/or Post trip accommodation to make for a fully relaxing holiday away.


We take you southwest, away from the central plateau, away from the Mighty Mount Ruapehu and Mount Tongariro down towards the Whanganui river, then depending on which length of trip you have chosen, either to Whakahoro Or Ohinepane to begin your Whanganui Journey!

If you are experiencing a Rangitikei River Canoe Trip with us we will take you in a slightly different direction, South towards Taihape and as this river is a little wilder and not managed by DOC we have greater flexibility with starting points!
