2 Day Paddle, Accommodation & Bike Price $200 per person

If you have two days in the area, and just feel like pacing yourself with a short bike ride, and a short canoe trip this is a great option.

9am Meet us at the Raetihi Holiday Park and we can transport you to Horopito - the start of the beautiful Old Coach Road. A historic track along a forgotten railway find the railway tunnel and ride over the Viaduct. Test yourself on a few small uphill sections and enjoy the ride back down. At the end of your 2-3 hour ride we will pick you up from Ohakune and you can come back to our comfy cabin  accommodation at the Raetihi Holiday Park.  If you want to take your time, before you start the ride have a look at Smash Palace  - a famous scene from a few movies including Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Smash Palace, and Goodbye Pork Pie. When you arrive in Ohakune, there are plenty of cafe's, bars, and restaurants if you want to have a celebratory lunch, hot drink or beer after doing the ride - just let us know where you want us to pick you up, otherwise we can just pick you up from the Car park at the end of the track.  If you really want to go all out, ask about hiring our Hot tub at the Holiday Park when making your booking.

* Relax at the Holiday Park in the morning, and at 10am we can transport you from Raetihi to Pipiriki where you will begin your 2-3 hour paddle to Jerusalem.  This section of the river is not part of the National Park, so there are no jet boats around, and you get away from the crowds a little.

Leave the rest of the world behind and experience peace and tranquility as you drift down the river towards Jerusalem. Our shuttle will be waiting at an agreed time to transport you back to Raetihi. Let us know if you want a few extra minutes to explore the famous Jerusalem Church.
