Rivertime Backcountry walks

Just a 30 minute drive from Whanganui and you can experience being in the “back of beyond”

Our Backcountry walking track is on private land in the rugged hills of the Whanganui River valley.The walk encompasses graded tracks through deep gorges and bluffs, high open ridges with spectacular views, a rocky stream crossing and a steep climb through untouched native bush.

The 6 and 3 hr loop walks are suitable for adults with moderate to high levels of fitness.

Stay at Rivertime Lodge and have access to our backcountry walk and also the Atene Skyline walk nearby.
