Wellington, New Zealand, September 12, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Kiwi Traveller – one of New Zealand’s favourite coach companies today announced the addition of Kayaking to the list of activates available to their passengers
Kiwi Traveller managing director Chris Barber said today “It’s about time that backpackers and locals alike were given an alternative option to the old train services. Kiwis are no longer willing to pay lots of money for an intercity service that resembles the old styles of Kiwi Experience, Magic Bus, Stray and Newman’s. Kiwi Traveller will give them all a shake up.”
Kayaking host Sarah describes the adventure:
“Enjoy the thrill and beauty of the Whakapapa River with our half day inflatable kayak tour. Be prepared to get wet and laugh a lot. Book in today for an exciting adventure your sure to remember as the highlight of your New Zealand vacation.
This is a local river that is suitable for people with no previous knowledge to enjoy a white water kayaking experience in a safe and controlled environment. The part of the river we operate on also encompasses beautiful native forest, with excellent native bird life and crystal clear mountain water.
Departing twice daily from the National Park Village at the base of Mount Ruapehu, home to the Lord of the Rings, in New Zealand’s beautiful North Island.”
Some of the highlights of the rest of the Kiwi Traveller trip are
Auckland: Major city, international airport and New Zealand’s city of sails.
Rotorua: Maori culture, Hangi, Haka and geysers
Lake Taupo: Skydiving, snowboarding and backpacking.
Turangi: Fishing, canoeing and rivers.
