Kayaking Adventures – A Great Whangaparaoa Vacation Activity

There are a number of places from which you can rent a Whanganui river kayak but it is important to find the right one for you. For starters, you should ask yourself what sort of kayak will you be needing – a sit on deck kayak, a freestanding deck kayak, a river kayak or an all-around boat? And secondly, you need to look at what sort of equipment is needed – a sit on deck kayak won’t need the same sorts of facilities that a freestanding or all-around boat will need.

To begin your search, you have two main options, either for a short weekend stay in Whangaparaoa or for a more extended stay. For those just staying a day or two there are a number of options to consider, including a Whangaparaoa Holiday Parks Hotel which offers all-inclusive discounts on day stays and luggage transfers to the North Island as well as special discounts for group bookings. Other options include Hana Bay, Te Puna & Hanalei Bay Holiday Parks, Hanalei Bay Intermediate Lodge and Te Puna Intermediate Camping and RV Park. To save money, you could also choose to book a vehicle to drive you around instead of using public transport. Alternatively, you can book a luxury vehicle with an overnight parking fee, although you may still need to pay for your own transport between the car and the campsite.

If you would like to go north to explore the countryside of the north island, then consider a Tauranga visit which would allow you to enjoy a scenic drive along the rugged coastline and a short swim in the marine park at Hanalei Bay. You can also join in the adventure of the local tai chi community by taking part in their weekly kapaheganui, or cultural gatherings held at their huts and workshops. Again, there is plenty of walking and hiking in to explore the countryside surrounding Hanalei and Te Puna, including both Mount Cook and Mt Ngongotaha National Parks. As you would expect, when it comes to accommodation in Whangaparaoa, you have many options including Te Puke Holiday Park Hotel, Hanalei Intermediate Lodge, Te Puna Intermediate Camping and RV Park, and Te Puna Intermediate Camping and RV Park. You can also enjoy comfortable Whangaparaoa accommodations such as a home or flat, private rental units or hotels and serviced apartments.
