Packrafting Manganui-a-te-aoRiver Grade 2+ from Ruatiti

A shorter and more exciting alternative to the Wanganui multi day.  The Manganui-a-te-ao is tucked away between Raetahi and the Wanganui River.  It’s a better option than the Wanganui in a packraft as it has some decent rapids over the first two thirds of the trip.  Trout and Whio abound and the scenery ranges from bouldery mountain stream to Wanganui Canyon.  Best done by overnighting at Ruatiti Domain and a second night at Ngaporo on the Wanganui.

The Manganui-a-te-ao is one of the only sizeable rivers in the area where water is not harvested for the Tongaririo Power Scheme.  It has been quietly famous for its Whio and trout fishery.  Avoid annoying Whio in the late spring /early summer period.
