Ohhhh we are looking forward to this.

The beautiful Puhoi Valley is north of Auckland and is such a delight with so many hidden gems on offer.

The kayaking trip for this adventure is from the Puhoi Historic Village to the Wenderholm Regional Park. It is 8km of flat (no rapids or waterfalls!) tidal (always going with you) water.

The trip will start with a summary of our basic kayaking rules from our fabulous hosts, who will give us a map of the river and explain in detail exactly where we are going. For new paddlers and rusty-paddlers, they offer basic paddling instructions. They will fit us out with comfortable, safe, buoyancy aids and will then take us to the river and help us into our double kayaks. And then we set off on our glide down the river.

We paddle downriver through native bush, farmland and down into the mangrove forest. Along the way herons, pukekos, kingfishers, and other water-minded birds flit in and out of the trees. If we listen very carefully, we may be lucky enough to hear the raucous laughter of the kookaburras!

We will then meander on down the wide estuary to the Wenderholm Regional Park with its stunning Pohutukawa fringed beaches, ending our adventure with a delicious picnic BBQ to fill our hungry tummy's, at the Regional Park. Along with something to quench the thirst too, of course :)

Once done there will be a courtesy shuttle waiting to return one of you to Puhoi to collect your car.

Sounds awesome. We do hope you can join us!

Couples who play together, stay together
