Book2 Day Freedom Hire (36.5 km)

2 Day Freedom Hire (36.5 km)

This is a great weekend getaway for you, your family or friends on the beautiful Whanganui river. A two day Yeti Tour starts at Ohinepane or Cherry Grove (depending on your level of fitness), approximately 20km downriver from Taumarunui. Here the river winds it's' way through a mixture of willow lined river flats, farmland and steep bush clad slopes. The trip ends just as we enter the main gorges of the Whanganui National Park. There is plenty of time for you to explore some interesting historical sites close to the river, including the Nukunuku Museum and the Maraekowhai Niu Poles. The exit point for this trip is Whakahoro. A great weekend trip for family groups and social clubs.

Are you the type of person who is fit but has little time? This trip is designed for you! The 3 day trip starts down the river at Whakahoro where the main part of the National Park begins. This trip covers the most scenic sections of the river with its' bush lined gorges and spectacular waterfalls.
