Tackle the Waikato River Trail by bike, by foot and by boat! Walk, ride and paddle along parts of the trail and explore spectacular native bush, with stops at Jones Landing, Arapuni Dam and Little Waipa. Paddle on Pokaiwhenua Stream and let the glow worms guide you.
As New Zealand's longest river, the Waikato River has plenty to explore!
On this fully guided guided tour, take yourself along the river by foot, by bike and by boat. First you'll walk from Jones Landing to Arapuni Dam before jumping on your bike and heading to Little Waipa or beyond.
In the afternoon or early evening, head out along Pokaiwhenua Stream for a gentle paddle as you gaze at the glow worms guiding you.
A zero alcohol and smoking policy applies.
Minimum numbers are required for this to proceed.
Please bring warm layer clothing (preferrably not cotton) as evening temperatures do drop. No jeans. Overpants, splash jackets and wetshoes will be provided.
Cameras are okay for going upstream while it's still light - they are no good after dark as the flash will spoil the viewing of the Glow Worms for yourself and others on the tour.
This experience takes place in Piarere, Waikato - 15 minutes from Cambridge, 45 minutes from Rotorua, 45 mins from Tauranga.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
