The Mangapurua Track

and Bridge to Nowhere


We supply a shuttle service for Hikers or Mountain Bikers into this very popular destination it is considered to be one of New Zealand’s iconic Mountain Bike trails and will take you through a wilderness area of abandoned farm land which was opened up for settlement for soldiers returning home after the First World War the settlement was a failure and the farms where abandoned when the Government stopped maintaining the road.


In conjunction with local jet boat operators  we offer a transport service into the start of the track in the Ruatiti valley and after being pickup by jet boat at the Bridge to Nowhere landing on the Whanganui River  you will be jet boated down thru the magnificent scenery of the Whanganui River to Pipiriki where we will pick you up and transport you safely back to your starting point.
