Kayakers

  • Cairnmuir Cottage is close to the Rangitikei River, local to Mangaweka. This provides some of the best Grade 2 kayaking and Grade 5 white water rafting in New Zealand.
  • The water features are challenging yet safe and a good starting point in your future as a white water paddler.
  • For those less adventurist types there are scenic kayaking tours and rafting floats, taking in the local bush and countryside.
