You will be transported by coach on a scenic 45 minute drive to Lake Rotoiti to begin your kayaking adventure.
Upon arrival at Lake Rotoiti, join your highly trained and knowledgeable guide who will inform you about the area, as well as local Maori history and legends. As you paddle onto the lake you will view the beautiful expansive scenery & geothermal vents. Paddle past classic Kiwi baches (holiday homes) and abundant birdlife towards the hidden entrance of the glow-worm cave. Once just inside the cave entrance, in approximately 20 metres of water, view the amazing glow-worms.
After exiting the cave, paddle across to the Manupirua thermal hot pools. These are natural thermal hot pools which are only accessible by water. Enjoy a well-earned break with a 30 min soak in the hot waters while taking in the breath-taking landscape of Rotoiti. During the tour, enjoy a classic kiwi packed lunch including a filled roll, biscuit, chocolate bar and bottle of water.
