Hi There and Welcome to NZ.
We are a family owned and operated tourism business. We run jet boat tours, mountain biking canoeing , tramping and accommodation.
Our Bridge to Nowhere Lodge is situated deep in the Whanganui National Park wilderness region. North Island. We are the only Whanganui River accommodation of this kind in the area. To get to us you have to travel 21km 30 minutes up river by jet boat. There are no roads to us.
At the Lodge we offer fully catered and back packer type accommodation. Buffet meals and licensed bar. We also have a campground with cabins and tenting.
As well as the above we have a farm with sheep, cattle, horses and bees.
Guests come up river on the jet boat and we also have heaps of people either mountain biking for a day or canoeing 2 days to get to the Lodge.
We have guests from all over the world and a number of guided tour groups as well. Most people stay one or two nights so there is a high turnover. Lots of beds to make, washing to do and more.
