One Day Lavender Farm Canoe
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Ohakune, Ruapehu
- Product code: 001
This trip is on the upper section of the Whanganui River. The trip departs from our base in Ohakune and we provide transport to the start at Taumarunui and back at the end of the day. There are many small bouncy rapids on the way to our takeout at Ohinepane - 22km downstream.
There is plenty of early Riverboat history to be seen with the remains of rock weirs that were made over 100 years ago to keep the river channels deep enough for the boats to navigate. Lunch is on the riverbank or after a short walk to the Lavender Farm Cafe where you can enjoy a cold drink, tea or espresso coffee. We often use a mixture of canoes on this trip - our 6 person guided Voyageur canoes are ideal for family groups. This trip is suitable for the whole family and takes around 5 hours. Departs Ohakune at 8am, or meet Taumarunui 9am
