Bay of Islands Walking Weekend
Haruru Falls Kayak and Walk - Walk 12
Catch a ferry from Russell to Waitangi. To make the most of high tide and kayaking through the mangrove forest you will kayak up the Waitangi River – the kayak is a relaxing paddle up the sheltered waters of the historic Waitangi River, experience the amazing unique horseshoe-shaped Haruru waterfall with a chance of exploring the fascinating mangrove forest. Your guides will share with you fauna, flora, local history and Maori legends while being your personal photographers. Walking back from the falls you follow the Waitangi inlet, with impressive views peeking out through native bush, walk across bridges and the boardwalk through our beautiful mangrove forest. The ferry will take you back to Russell from Waitangi.
