Join us for a guided Kayak trip to the spectacular Manupirua Springs Hot Pools on Lake Rotoiti.

On arrival we will get you kitted up in the paddling gear, after a paddle and safety brief we paddle across scenic Lake Rotoiti to this amazing spot only accessible by boat.

Situated right on the lake edge there are a range of hot pools of varying temperatures all fed from a natural hot spring.

Paddling time is usually around 1 hour each way. There is plenty of time to relax and enjoy the hot pools or swim in the lake before enjoying a leisurely return paddle.
During the paddle your guide will tell you some of the history of the area and some local Maori legend’s.
