Paddle right through the Whanganui National Park, a remote and impenetrable region rich in Māoritanga (Maori culture).

Deep jungles and incised rivers extend for 700 square kilometres and there is almost no road access. Canadian canoes are a comfortable and classic choice for this journey. Explore and enjoy the mighty Whanganui River – the life force of the area as it weaves its way from the mountains to the sea.

The Whanganui has a special magic not present on most rivers. Besides its rich history, much of which is still apparent on the riverbanks, it is perhaps the last remaining river that was significant in early transport networks that remains truly wild and untouched.
