Water Activities

Learn about the early history and pioneering days on the Whanganui River, part of the Whanganui National Park & the Bridge to Nowhere.  You’ll be captivated by the deep, mystical gorges and rich flora and fauna that surround the area.  Spanning this river is the famous Bridge to Nowhere.

Fishers from far and wide seek out the best fishing locations in the region and enjoy the tranquility of their endeavours.

Adrenaline seekers can challenge themselves on the water by canoeing, kayaking or rafting down the waterways with both freedom and guided trips available.  Alternatively zooming up and down river on a jet boat – a uniquely New Zealand invention - is another way of accessing the hinterland.

You can always just be at one with nature, sitting in solitude on the banks of a river or near a cascading waterfall, and enjoy the serenity.

     ► Go canoeing, kayaking & rafting down the Whanganui River  
     ► Adventure in the water on a jet boat tour on the Whanganui River
     ► Relax and find the best fishing in Ruapehu
     ► Learn about the cultural heritage on a Maori cultural tour
