This is our 2nd most popular half day trip and is the perfect daytime activity for the whole family. The trip initially starts at The Boatshed where we get you all signed in and set for the trip.
From here it’s a short drive up to Hora Hora where you enter the water and start the 9km paddle back down stream to The Boatshed. On the way there are several great spots to stop and have a picnic or stretch the legs. There is also access to a hidden inlet which offers access to two waterfalls which are only accessible via kayak.
Draped in native ferns and hidden away from the main lake the waterfalls are a great must do detour on the way back to The Boatshed.
This is our most popular half day trip and is the perfect daytime activity for the whole family. The trip starts from The Boatshed and takes you across Lake Karapiro to a hidden inlet. The inlet offers access to two waterfalls which are only accessible via kayak. The first waterfall takes you up a narrow section of canyon which is draped in native ferns and is the easier of the two to access. The second takes you further along the inlet to a place which at first glance seems like a dead end. After ducking under a few ferns it opens up to a hidden stream which takes you through the forest to the more spectacular of the two waterfalls.
Take a guided tour around Lake Karapiro in easy to use, super light Sea kayaks. Visit stunning waterfalls, site the famous international rowing course and get involved in a fun activity/game co-ordinated by your experienced guide.
This tour is located on sheltered Karapiro waters and is perfect for families, corporates or a group of friends that want a tour with a twist.
He activity/game provided will be done on water, it will challenge you but is a fun way to try something different in a kayak, and is what makes this tour different to others.
