Bridge to Nowhere Lodge

Whanganui River, Box 4203, , Manawatu-Wanganui, 4576, New Zealand

Deep inside Whanganui National Park, roughly 30 miles upriver from Pipiriki, this private enclave can only be reached by jet-boat; however, the remote location rewards you with magnificent forest vistas, birdsong at dawn, and the chance to bathe under the stars in an outdoor tub. Accommodations range from double bush- and river-view rooms in the comfortable lodge to self-catering bunkrooms and cabins. In addition, there's a camping area with shared cooking and shower facilities. Lodge owner Jo runs jet-boat tours upriver to the Bridge to Nowhere and provides jet-boat access to hiking and mountain biking sites within the national park. Canoe trips and canoe rentals are also available.
