If you want a little heart racing action with your scenic tour; then this experience is for you! Mix it up with an adventurous jet boat ride on the Whanganui River and through the National Park, then get out and bush walk to the picturesque Bridge To Nowhere. Picnic lunch included.
Your experience starts with a shuttle bus to the waiting jet boat at the upper most region of the Whanganui River in Taumarunui. You'll jump aboard and jet strapped in, then it's off down the white water rapids for some heart racing adventure! Travelling down stream you'll pass through King Country farmland and lush hills covered in verdant vegetation. You'll end up right in the middle of the Whanganui National Park. Here, you'll take in awe inspiring scenery consisting of deep gorges, native bush, caves and idyllic waterfalls.
Learn about the Maori and early settlement history of the area and see remnants of yesteryear when the river was used by steamboats. Arrive at Mangaparua Landing; the getaway to the iconic Bridge To Nowhere. Go on an easy 40 minute bush walk to the bridge and snap some gorgeous photos. Take a break in the picturesque surrounds and enjoy your supplied picnic lunch. The return boat journey is a great chance to spot the plentiful native birds.
