Adrift Wanganui Canoe Guiding
Guided Wanganui river canoe trips.
1 Day Wanganui River Guided Canoe (Taumarunui to Ohinepane)
This tour is designed for those who want to experience another of NZ’s Great Walks. Strange as it may be yes this is a GREAT WALK. This is a unique way of spending time in another of New Zealand’s wonderful National Parks. The Wanganui National Park has rugged terrain covered in lush native forest with the Wanganui River flowing through the heart of it.
The Wanganui River is rich with Maori and European history, the largest reminder of which is the famous ‘Bridge to Nowhere’. Just like the early explorers, you will see and experience the NZ wilderness, wondering if you have taken a step back in time.
Paddling downstream you will travel through bush-clad hills, see waterfalls, spectacular sheer gorges, farmland as well as some rapids en-route.
Guide/s, return transfers from the Adrift Tongariro base to the river put in, lunch and all equipment required (canoe, dry barrels for your gear, PFD’s, paddles)
Adrift Tongariro has available for hire equipment and clothing to supplement that which you don’t have and need.
