Itinerary

DAY 1:     ARRIVE AT NATIONAL PARK
Arrive into National Park Village and check into The Park Hotel, the ideal base to explore this area. National Park is home to three active volcanic mountains and iconic majestic landscapes and we suggest a visit to the Tongariro National Park Visitor Centre to learn about the natural and cultural values of the park.  

DAY 2:    3 DAY GUIDED WHANGANUI RIVER TOUR
This tour is designed for those who want to experience one of NZ’s Great Walks but from Canoe.  This is a unique way of spending time in another of New Zealand’s wonderful National Parks. The Whanganui National Park has rugged terrain covered in lush native forest with the Whanganui River flowing through the heart of it.

 

The Whanganui River is rich with Maori and European history, the largest reminder of which is the famous ‘Bridge to Nowhere’. Just as the early explorers did, you will see and experience the NZ wilderness, pondering 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 enroute.

 

WHAKAHORO TO JOHN COULL HUT: This day involves a 6-hour paddle to John Coull Hut passing. We will be passing Tamateas Cave at approx 4 hours. 

 

DAY 3: JOHN COULL HUT TO TIEKE MARAE.
Today it is a 5-hour paddle from John Coull Hut to Tieke Marae stopping at the Bridge to Nowhere along the way (1.5-hour return walk).

DAY 4: TIEKE MARAE TO PIPIRIKI.
The last day exploring this beautiful part of NZ. Our four-hour paddle to Pipiriki is where we will be met by our transport which will take us back to the Adrift Tongariro base by 5:00 pm. We will successfully negotiate the 3 largest rapids of the journey including the Ngaporo Rapid and the infamous Autapu Rapid. On our return to National Park village you will be dropped back at your accommodation late afternoon.

 

DAY 5:    DEPART NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast check out of your accommodation.  Before heading home maybe take the opportunity to visit areas within the local region.  Ohakune is home to the famous Chocolate Éclair.
