Unwind during a scenic cruise across the mirrored Lake Mapourika and into the sheltered estuaries of the Okarito Kiwi Sanctuary, before exploring the rainforest by foot. Be immersed in its ancient enchantment as you follow a custom-built trail, with many native bird encounters along the way.
Experience Mother Nature's brilliance as you cruise across the pristine waters of Lake Mapourika and into the remote estuaries of the Okarito Kiwi Sanctuary. During the journey, you'll be treated to expansive vistas of snow-peaked mountains and glistening glaciers in the horizon. You'll then hop off the boat and begin the trail through this Jurassic-like rainforest along a custom-built track. Feel like you're worlds away as you enter into a green wonderland, brimming with towering trees and curious birdlife including the rarest kiwi on the planet - the Rowi. It is nothing short of magical!

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
