Kahutara Canoes & Taxidermy

Kahutara Canoes

Enjoy an unguided freedom paddle down the scenic Ruamahanga River and experience the river in a way you never have before! Three self-guided river trips are available that vary from ¾ hour up to 5 hours. Stop off for a swim in the summer on the river bank or enjoy a picnic. There is no age limit

If you enjoy peace & quiet and getting off the beaten track this is for you! Kahutara Canoes have been in the business for almost 40 years and know how to give a great experience.

But that's not all Kahutara canoes offers its guests. 

All canoe trips include a visit to a unique museum of natural history housed in a log building, where you can see a collection of mounted animals and birds from New Zealand and overseas.
