Ngaruroro River

I'm keen to paddle the Ngaruroro this coming weekend. Does anyone have any good suggestions on shuttle options from Boyd Hut to Whanawhana Rd?

In the past I've flown in with Air Charter Taupo and got a mate from Napier to pick us.

Cheers for that. We paddled Waihohonu and Upper Rangi instead. Great flows and awesome stay and River Valley.

Hi Lee,
The gauge at Kuripapango is reading 750mm. This is too low for the upper, so get your mate to drop you at Kuripapango (on the Napier-Taihape road), and spend 2 days down to WhanaWhana. If you are really set on going to Boyd, try Lakeland aviation (07 378 0085).
