Jet Boat Tours

Enjoy the stunning scenery of the Whanganui River National Park the easy way, our jet boat can take you all the way to the Bridge to Nowhere and back in a day trip.  Experience the thrills of zooming along with the wind in your hair and running the rapids with our experienced jet boat driver to keep you safe and tell you all about the sights.  Our customised heated hand rails will ensure your comfort even in the depth of winter.

Guided Fly Fishing

Our stretch of the Whanganui River is well known for some of the best trout fishing in the world. Taumarunui hosted the 2020 Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships and the 2009 World Fly Fishing Championships among others.

Whether you’re a novice or an experienced angler, we can tailor a fishing trip to your requirements.  Join our fly fishing guide, previous NZ champion Peter Scott, for expert tuition at secret fishing spots known only by the locals and experience the moods of our river as it runs through bush blocks and farmland. Or for the more experienced angler, choose a trip into absolute wilderness to the headwaters.

Forgotten World Garden Tours

Enjoy a little luxury, a great view, fine dining and a sense of style on your adventures? Our Forgotten World Garden Tours will open your eyes to a whole other world! Choose to add a dash of excitement and travel by down the Whanganui River by Jet Boat, or by road along the Forgotten World Highway.

Four gorgeous gardens; Bradley’s Garden, To Whenua, Omaka Lodge and Lauren’s Lavender Farm make up the Forgotten World Gardens.

Scenic Helicopter Rides

Experience the Ruapehu district as you never have before, as you helicopter over breath-taking, panoramic, aerial views from the Whanganui River to historic farmsteads and bush.  The views are incredible, from pristine native forest where the awa winds its way through deep bush-clad canyons to rocky whitewater rapids.  For no extra cost you can experience the river a little closer up and combine a helicopter and jet boat experience, complete with lunch!
