Im a student at AUT taking part in an outdoor recreational leadership course. I'm looking for a 2, 3 or 4 day trip on grade 2+,3,4-, hopefully somewhere where you cannot normally get access to for a day trip, possibly 40 to 90 km in length, it could include a portage. A source to sea or source to lake trip might be interesting. Somewhere that many people don't paddle would be cool. If anyone could suggest the name of a river, section, grade, length, shuttle, camp sites, necessary flows, interesting things about the trip and any other relevant details it would be greatly appreciated.
