Mangaweka Adventure Company


Adventure activities

A friendly company that offers rafting & kayaking trips from 1 hour to 4 days on the Rangitikei River. They specialise in family-fun trips that include children as young as 4. I like their promise to 'match your boat to your mood'. There is also a camping ground set aside the river as well as an onsite cafe with internet access.

  • Prices: Day-trips start at $55 for adults and $40 for children.
  • Contact: State Highway 1, Managaweka
  • Tel: 06-382-5744, 0800-655-747 (freephone within NZ)

Wanganui and Manawatu Highlights

  • Immerse yourself in Whanganui National Park and its grade II major river. This key shipping route of the past is now an action zone for canoes, kayaks and jet boats while the park itself is crying out to be walked in.
  • Drive the Whanganui River road to Pipiriki. Try not to stop at every scenic photo opportunity or you may be some time.
