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.
At over 100km long, the Waikato River Trail is an adventure waiting to happen! With this "triventure" you'll take on three different activities - walk, ride and paddle all in one day!
Walk along part of the Waikato River Trail, travel though some spectacular native bush. Stop over on the lookout high above Jones Landing to view the pink hues of the ignimbrite bluffs of the upper Arapuni.
Meet up with the bikes to ride from Arapuni Dam through the village and over the swing-bridge to Little Waipa on grade 2 undulating trails. Ride over native wetlands on boardwalks, and keep an eye out for Pukekos!
Kayak from Little Waipa down river to the southern end of Lake Karapiro back to headquarters, or from headquarters up to the picturesque Pokaiwhenua Stream and canyon.

A minimum of two people are required.
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.
