A few years ago we, as a family, decided to do Christmas on the river. There were 4 adults and 3 children. We had an adult and a child in 2 Canadian Canoes & 2 adults and 1 child in Kayaks. We hopped in at Whakahoro & popped out in Pipiriki 4 days later. An absolute life changing experience, there were a couple of scary bits in between as river was slightly in flood but wow what a game changer it was amazing!!
