Owhango Adventures should be your first choice to Canoe the Whanganui River, one of the longest navigable rivers in New Zealand.
We are located in the centre of the Ruapehu Region in the North Island and are based in a small town called Owhango on SH 4 Ruapehu.
We offer a Cultural Guided Whanganui River trip as well as a range of Canoe and Kayak Hire options with accommodation and food available:
Self Guided Canoe Hire
Cultural Guided Whanganui River trips
Short 1-day Canoe Trips
Longer 2-5 day Whanganui River Journeys
You really can do it ALL from here – located in the heart of the spectacular Central Plateau, Taumarunui Holiday Park is the ideal base for all the many activities this largely untamed wilderness offers.
