The canyons of the Rangitikei River offers some of the most beautiful river scenery of any river in New Zealand, including better known names such as the Whanganui or Clarence. And yet, for the most part only a select lucky few venture to truly explore it.
It has always been somewhat of a mystery to us why this has been the case.
We realised there were probably two reasons for this.
1/. People are not aware of the beauty of this river
2/. They are aware, but don’t know how to access it
If you have ever wanted to really know what lies in that spectacular river canyon that you only occasionally glimpse while traveling on SH1, then this is the trip for you.
The Rangitikei River Explorer, is a river expedition that allows you to access the canyon, and lets you see the beauty of this unique waterway
You will encounter few (if any) people as you take in how the canyon walls rise dramatically from the river, appreciate clear fresh water, and relax at camp sites that are quiet and secluded.
Unlike most multi day river trips, this particular trip has a mix of camping and staying at beautiful riverside Lodges.
