5 days of adventure & fun of river

My 18 yr old son and I had a fantastic time on our trip, 5 days canoeing the Whanganui River. We had a great guide, Canon, who cooked the most amazing meals and was very helpful and safety conscious as the river was running high. Very clear and direct instruction when facing tricky sections of the river. All of the gear provided was of great quality and did I mention the food, we ate like Kings!!!! Top Marks!!

We couldn't have wanted for anyone better

A wonderful five day trip down the river in perfect weather. Beautiful scenery, peace and tranquility. It was efficiently organised and there was a variety of good tasty meals with ample good wine as well! Chloe was an excellent guide, always patient, friendly and enthusiastic. She expertly guided us through rapids and around eddies, explaining about the history of the river and points of interest.

We were treated so well

Our guide Sheri was one of the best. Everything was about pleasing the clients. We were treated so well! I will definitely recommend Hiking New Zealand to others that travel to New Zealand.
