Lake Rotoiti Starlight Kayak Tour

Home / Lake Rotoiti Starlight Kayak Tour

Experience an evening adventure kayaking out over one of New Zealand’s most stunning water ways, Lake Rotoiti. Take in the beautiful scenery, abundant birdlife, and learn the myths and legends linked to the area as you paddle towards the magical glow worm cave.

Glide across the lake to the stunning Manupirua Hot Pools, which are only accessible by water. On the way back see how the lake is transformed by the moon and the twinkling stars above, with the night sky being the perfect end to the adventure.
