Rotorua Glowworm Guided Kayaking Tour


  • Blissful kayaking tour on Lake Okareka at sunset
  • Paddle into a hidden cave illuminated by thousands of glowworms
  • Stargaze on the return paddle journey

Spend dusk paddling along the calm waterways of Lake Okareka to an incredible cavern home to thousands of twinkling glowworms. Be led inside the hidden cave and be enchanted by the bright glimmers of these magnificent creatures, before the return journey under star-dusted skies.

What's Included?

  • All kayaking equipment
  • Expert guide

When the sun begins to sink into the horizon, you will set off from the shoreline of Lake Okareka for your unforgettable adventure. Right behind your guide, you will follow the lake's edge, exploring the area and embracing the weather conditions. As nighttime rolls in, you'll be led into a magnificent hidden cave housing a galaxy of glowworms. Take ample time to be dazzled by the cave walls speckled with the bright lights of these magical creatures, before returning along your course in the dark.
