Hi there,

I'm new on this forum, so hi to everyone out there.

A mate and I are keen for a north island mission down a river, with a few overnights thrown in for good measure, and am after a few ideas for locations.

We'll have plastic sea-kayaks, so not too keen on hardcore rapids. Purhaps Grade 2 or 3 at the most? We're probably intermediate level paddlers, with some white water experience, but nothing hardcore.

Keen for something pretty remote, like the Whanganui, but we did that a few years back.

Anyone got any favourite jungle paddles? Thanks heaps.
