Getting the whole group prepared for their canoe adventure 

We understand getting a large group together can be logistically challenging. Having helped many large groups with their plans - Let us know where the group are travelling from and we can offer advice on how to get here to our base in Ohakune. 

For all of our customers, we recommend staying the night before at our onsite motel. This works especially well for larger groups all being based in the same location.  Why not make it a longer holiday and group bonding experience by basing yourself at our Ohakune accommodation and ticking off a few other local activities?  We can help with recommendations on other attractions and can also make local restaurant reservations for your large group.  Here are some of our favourite Ohakune food stops.

When you make the booking, we will also send you a PDF to share with everyone containing suggested gear lists and lots of information to help everybody start planning for their time on the river.
