Spectacular outdoor experience on the Whanganui River - jet boating to The Bridge to Nowhere with experienced local hosts, complete mountain biking packages for the Mountains to the Sea Cycle Trail, and the Mangapurua/Bridge to Nowhere Cycle Trail. We also arrange guided canoe tours for groups, run by experienced local Maori hosts. Wonderful experience with good people.The scenery is fantastic, out of this world, this is why New Zealand is the film makers paradise!
