The Epic (Day 1 & 2 of 4)
- Duration: 4 Days (approx.)
- Location: Taumarunui
- Product code: EPIC-Day1&2
The Epic travels across wide expanses of
rugged countryside and native bush, over 47 bridges and through 21 tunnels
before arriving in New Zealand’s only self-proclaimed republic –
Whangamomona. After spending the night, continue through 3 more tunnels
and 18 more bridges on the way to Stratford. From here a shuttle takes you to
Whanganui for your next overnight stay. In the morning travel to
Pipiriki, a settlement on the eastern bank of the stunning Whanganui River, to
begin the two day jet boat tour up the river.
In addition to the breath taking landscape
of the Whanganui River, the highlights of these two days will be the short walk
into your lunch stop on the Bridge to Nowhere, a night’s accommodation in the
tranquil Blue Duck Station in Whakahoro and the lunch at Lauren’s Lavender Farm
before arriving back in Taumarunui to conclude your EPIC adventure.
You’ll feel fully connected to this wonderful
landscape after four days adventuring on the rail and the river. It will leave
you in awe of the life our forefathers forged for themselves that somehow
remains intrinsic in us all.
This trip is limited to 60 seats throughout
the season. All accommodation is included.
