Canoe School

Canoe School

Our Canoe School offers young people aged 14+ the opportunity to spend time in one of New Zealand’s amazing National Parks.   

We start with some essential instruction based in Taumarunui learning to canoe and kayak.  

Along the way we stop at a number of really interesting and fun places and learn some of the history of this amazing part of the country.  We are in a total wilderness environment. 

Be in early, this School often fills well before the closing date.
