MOUNTAIN BIKE – up the scenic River Rd to Hiruharama (Jerusalem) optional
CANOE – down the river back to the Jet boat base
Arrive in the afternoon at the Whanganui Scenic Experience Jet base where your car will be securely parked.
Experience the thrill of a jet boat ride as you travel upstream into the Whanganui National Park, following the historic path of the river boats of bygone eras.
Arrive at the Flying Fox and settle into your unique hand built cottage. Relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility with a glass of wine or perhaps a soak in a bush bath.
Spend the morning exploring the Flying Fox site, take a swim in the river, or walk to the nearby historic Koriniti Post Office.
Depart from the banks of the Flying Fox and take a leisurely canoe paddle down the river back to the jet boat base, with time to stop and explore along the way.
Be fully pampered and allow The Flying Fox to provide a delicious home cooked dinner, continental breakfast and packed lunch for you.
Add an extra day
Why not make the most of your trip and add an extra night at the Flying Fox? Spend your second day relaxing at this tranquil site or take the Mountain Bikes and explore the River Rd up to Hiruharama (Jerusalem).
The Flying Fox provides a unique experience with eco-friendly accommodation on the banks of the Whanganui River. With no road access visitors arrive via aerial cable car across the river or land on the bank from jet boat or canoe. Either way you will be guaranteed a warm welcome from husband and wife owners Jane and Kelly and invited to share their piece of paradise. You will be staying in one of three self-contained cottages which are hand-built from reclaimed materials and comfortably furnished with carefully restored and upcycled items.
Each cottage is fully self -contained and equipped with everything you will need to make your stay comfortable including all linen and tea and coffee supplies. If you choose to self-cater a small on-site shop has basic supplies for anything you may have forgotten to bring. Whilst there is no cell phone reception, free Wi-Fi enables you to keep in touch with the outside world should you need to.
