There is no permit required to access the rangitaiki anymore.... the rules were changed a while ago to allow fishermen and kayakers to access the river without needing a permit.

okey, thanks Jonathan. Your advice is very helpful.
any recommendation for accommodation and transport are cheap and easy for access to this river?

No permits are necessary for the rivers, but you'll need a permit to travel through the Kaingaroa forest for the Rangitaiki - see the guide.
