The Kahurangi National Park road is particularly beautiful as it meanders through pasture and Native bush alongside the pristine mountain fed Wangapeka River. Easily accessible to swim or picnic by.
Your enjoyment and safety is paramount to us. If you are interested in any of these activities we expect that you have the equipment and knowledge required. We feel our role is as a friendly base providing helpful tips and fixing the odd logistical problem.
