3-Day Trip (Whakahoro to Pipiriki)
This 3-day journey takes in the most picturesque part of the Whanganui River from Whakahoro to Pipiriki. This stretch of the river covers 87 kilometres of untouched New Zealand bush, with an abundance of streams and rivers that merge into the Whanganui. You can walk (45 minutes each way) from the Canoe Trip to the Bridge-to-Nowhere.
4-Day Trip (Ohinepane to Pipiriki)
An alternative to the 3-day for those with more time, this trip begins shortly before the start of the 3-day in Ohinepane and also finishes in Pipiriki.
5-Day trip (The Great River Journey)
This is the official Department of Conservation ‘Great Walk’ which encompasses the entire navigable part of the Whanganui River- 145 kilometers worth of beauty. Meander down the river at your own pace and take in all of the incredible scenery and history from ‘nui’ pole to the Bridge to Nowhere walk. To the Tieke pa on this once in a lifetime expedition. Take a ride through New Zealand history and experience this once crucial ‘highway’ of early trade.
