Lake Rotoiti Starlight Kayaking Experience
Bay of Plenty tourism operator, Waimarino Group, has developed an exciting five-hour kayaking experience in Rotorua that includes a lake kayak, a visit to a glow-worm cave, and a gourmet barbecue dinner for groups of up to 40 people.

Enjoy an evening adventure, kayaking out over one of New Zealand’s most stunning waterways, Lake Rotoiti. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, abundant birdlife, and learn the myths and legends linked to the area, before kayaking over to the stunning Manupirua Hot Pools. Here, you are provided with a sumptuous gourmet barbeque dinner. Then – as the sun goes behind the hills, you adventure out to the magical glow-worm cave to see the glow worms and learn about their life cycles and legends. On the way back, you can see how the lake is transformed by the moon and the twinkling Southern Sky stars above, giving you the perfect end to a memorable adventure.

The price is $235 NZD (approx. $212 Cdn) per person.
