Scenic hot pools kayak trip

Join us on a guided scenic sea kayak tour around the shores of beautiful Lake Rotoiti to the Manupirua hot pools - one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets.  Sea kayaking is a great way to explore the stunning shores, birdlife and unspoilt scenery of the Lake. Nestled into the bush clad hillside of Lake Rotoiti, the Manupirua pools are Rotorua’s hidden jewel and are only accessible by water.


This unique destination has 6 natural mineral pools of various temperatures, in a stunning private lakeside setting. We recommend you bring a drink bottle of water so you stay hydrated while swimming in the hot pools. 


Our kayak guides pride themselves on being great hosts and we are proud to show off our beautiful back yard. 


Paddle 30 minutes each way on this trip. Allow 3 hours including pickups and transfers from Rotorua. Bookings are essential.


WHAT TO BRING: togs (swimwear) and towel, hat, plus a bottle of drinking water and a snack if you wish.
