Sunset Kayak Glow Worm Cave Tour
As the sun sets over the Bay of Plenty, take a kayak into the hidden glow worm caves around the Rotorua Caves on this remarkable after-dark tour. Instead of trying to find your own way out to the caves, take a kayak across the lakes with a guide by your side who can help you navigate the tunnels and keep you on course. Marvel at the clusters of glowing bugs and the way they light up these underground rock formations.
Rotorua Twilight Stand-Up Paddleboard Tour and Glow Worm Experience
Steer a stand-up paddleboard through a spectacular display of glow worms on a twilight tour of Lake Rotorua glow worm caves and rock formations. Paddling Lake Rotorua at dusk means the perfect light to see the glow worms at their sparkling, shining best, and you’ll watch the first stars appear over the lake as you return to shore.
Rotorua Lakes Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) Scenic Tour
See the rolling hills and sprawling rainforest of the Rotorua Lakes region from the lakes themselves on this unique paddle-board tour. Paddle around Lake Tikitapu, Lake Tarawera or Lake Okareka – your guide chooses the best lake on the day. See ancient volcanoes, old Māori pa and impressive caves and forests without having to pack for a sweaty multi-day hike. When you get tired on the boards, swim in the lakes or explore the shoreline at your own speed.
2 hours 30 minutes
Steaming Kayak Tour
Active travelers who want to experience a combination of Rotorua’s best attractions will love this kayaking tour. While paddling a kayak around the beautiful shores of Lake Rotoiti, you’ll also get the chance to stop and bathe in natural outdoor hot springs. These are not a commonly known tourist attraction, and don’t get the same crowds as hot springs in central Rotorua. As numbers are limited to six on this tour, you can enjoy a peaceful wilderness-like experience.
