Treat yourself to an evening kayak tour of Lake Rotoiti, filled with scenic views, historic commentary and photo opportunities. Heading off with a knowledgable guide, you will make your way to the spectacular Manupirua Springs Hot Pools, only accessible by boat. During the paddle your guide will tell you some of the history of the area and local Maori legends. Situated on the lake's edge, you will enjoy plenty of time to relax in the six mineral hot pools of varying temperatures while your guide cooks a traditional BBQ dinner. After refuelling and perhaps taking a dip in the lake, you will jump back in the kayak for a picturesque sunset paddle back to base, including a visit to a hidden glow worm cave.
