Three hours north of Wellington and the rafting fun begins, thanks to the Mangaweka Adventure Company. There are two reasonable river adventures of one hour and three hour duration, and a heart pumping grade five white water jaunt. Experienced guides who provide instruction and safety gear accompany all trips. Also overnight camps in New Zealand's most beautiful canyons. If the rafting is not enough then a bungy drop into the canyon or a quick jet boat spin will provide an adrenalin filled experience.
A great day trip, for those with the big city rush blues or children who just want to see the country. An educational and tourist experience, the owners provide guided tours where you have a chance to meet the owls, other birds and animals big and small. The newly opened Wairuru glow-worm cave will provoke squeals of delight from the little ones watching the twinkling lights of the tiny creatures overhead. This place is open daily from 9a.
