This is our most popular trip. If you want a real holiday away from the TV and phone then this is it. If you have children then this is an ideal option. There are 2 different starting points for the 5 day depending on river levels-Ohinepane or Whakahoro. We often meet clients at our base in Ohakune the night before the trip to check river gear and allow you to meet the guides. We have 6 Motel units at our base and plenty of safe off street parking, so once you arrive it's very quick and easy to get packed for the trip.
Below is a rough guide of what to bring. We organize all of the food and wine, tents, sleeping mats and cooking gear-you just bring a sleeping bag and personal gear.
Most of our guests stay at our lodge accommodation in Ohakune the night before the trip and the night after the trip. This makes for an easy start and allows guests plenty of time to pack/stuff all their gear into their river barrels.
Trip Dates and Group Discounts: With a family of 2 adults and 3 children (15 and under) the third child pays 20% of the child rate. Group concessions are available.
*Trip start dates are a guideline only - with groups we can start a trip to suit you. We also run extra trips between Christmas and New Year and in early January.
