The Beautiful Whanganui

The Whanganui River has long been a tourist feature for the area.  Have you had the chance to see it yet?  Beautiful, calm and an amazing experience!  There are a few ways to enjoy the journey  – by canoe/waka, jet boat, or taking a steam trip up to Pipiriki – and you can take as long or as short a time as you like.

If you have not had the chance to see this amazing gem, check out this video of a trip made in 2006:

And if this inspires you to want to see it in person, check out the Bridge to Nowhere or Whanganui River Canoes for more information on booking and travel times.

Merry Christmas!
