This trip is for the keen adventurer.  It begins at the eastern side of Kahurangi National Park, where you will hike (guided) for 2 days, staying in backcountry huts.  The beginning of the hike takes you through the beech tree forests and up onto the Tablelands, where you can enjoy the beauty of sub-alpine tranquility.  On the second day you will begin descending into the river valley that leads you to Karamea Bend.

Waking on the third day to listen for the helicopter, you will prepare for the trade of hiking gear to ‘river kit’.  Joined now by your team of expert river crew you will spend the following 3 days making your way through the Tasman Wilderness area and out to the West Coast.  (see 3 Day Karamea).
