Paddling on Lake Rotoiti

Neighbouring the famous Lake Rotorua, our Scenic Lake Rotoiti Day tour offers both an experience in two of New Zealand’s best kept secrets.

Paddle past the cascading native bush admiring the classic kiwi baches dotted along the cliffs and coves. Learn the myths and legends of the Maori people linked to the area while exploring the quiet lake and it’s abundance of birdlife, before entering the glow worm cave. Glide further across the lake before you arrive at the Manupirua Hot Pools which are only accessible by water. This gives you a chance to relax with the locals in the natural geo-thermal pools while you admire the beauty of your surroundings.

The tour is led by our professional guides and is suitable for all ages.
