Accommodation Details

Yeti Tours has a 30+ year history of canoe tours on the Whanganui River, being one of the first to offer clients guided and freedom hire trips on this remarkable waterway. Our attention to detail and success in achieving a professional client-focused adventure, has resulted in Yeti Tours becoming a leading operator on the Whanganui River. You can be assured you are in safe hands with us. We have achieved a qualmark certification which requires high safety standards and protocols to be in place. This is audited annually and we have a DOC concecssion to operate guided trips on the Whanganui River.

Since the creation of the Whanganui National Park in 1987, there have been many changes to the facilities available to paddlers on the river. However, at Yeti Tours, we still have the same philosophy of providing our clients with a never to be forgotton wilderness experience.

All canoes and kayaks come with paddles, bouyancy vests, waterproof storage barrels and/or cascade dry bags. Helmets and spray decks are available on request.

And a feedback comment "an absolutely wonderful experience and I couldn't be a bigger advocate for the work that you, or your guides, are doing.-Holly"
  • We loved the experience & Yeti were a great company to use. The advice was excellent and they didn't overload us with too much information. It allowed us to enjoy the surprises as they unfold. They also supplied some of the things we didn't think to bring along.

  • Everything went fine, we picked up the barrels the day before, allthough I recommand not to do that before 4pm because before nobody might be there because people from the river are picked up. Alltogether it was great fun to paddle on the river!

  • Really good run down on arrival of the trip to be expected and what we would need to take and how to pack it. Was grateful to be given a Spot so that Yeti could keep an eye on us. Waited around for a while before leaving but had no idea what was happening until we kept asking which vehicle to hop in. Driver to/from the start and finish was lovely and really good with her briefing. Her driving was a bit erratic and fast for the road conditions though.
