Full description
Experience the grade 2 rapids and calm waters of the Waiau River on a 5-hour canoe tour in Hanmer Springs. Make your own way to the meeting point on the main road into Hanmer Springs, overlooking the river and Waiau Ferry Bridge. Located approximately 90 minutes from Christchurch, the mountain town is a Mecca for fans of adventure activities, such as bungy jumps, quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, and much more. Upon arrival, get a safety briefing from a fully-qualified guide, and then climb aboard the inflatable canoe. Ride down the beautiful Alpine river, stopping for a picnic lunch among the surrounding mountains and forest. The river is so clear that you can often see trout or salmon swimming by. Travel approximately 25 kilometers over grade 2 rapids and more gentle waters for a mix of moderate white water thrills and relaxation that is perfect for the whole family. Then, return to the base by jet boat and enjoy the surrounding mountains and forests from another perspective.
