Whanganui is home to the mystical Whanganui River, a 290-kilometre long waterway and one of the longest in the country.

The Whanganui River Journey is a 5-day canoe or kayak adventure that ventures deep into the dense forests of the vast Whanganui National Park. Enjoy the river’s steep-sided canyons and small rapids and listen to melodious native birdsong as you paddle down this beautiful New Zealand waterway. Kayak and canoe hire is easy, and you can choose how much of the journey you want to do with pre-planned pick up and drop off points.
