It was a drizzly morning when I went on my kayak trip with this company but that didn’t matter because scenery was stunning! With the option of single kayaks for experienced kayakers and double kayaks for beginners and those less experienced, this felt very safe and the guide was extremely knowledgeable of the environment. The lake was calm and as it had been raining, we saw waterfalls too. Great wet weather gear provided and they give you free photos which is excellent! Loved it – would highly recommend to both Kiwis and international tourists.


This was a great adventure for my two boys. We spent about an hour paddling across the lake and then went ashore for a walk through the rainforest led by our guide Laura. This was a very enjoyable walk and Laura stopped frequently to explain features in the forest and talked about the history and wildlife. We enjoyed a hot chocolate before returning to our kayaks to paddle back across the lake.
The weather was kind to us and the forecast rain did not appear during the afternoon. It was lovely to experience the peace and tranquility of the lake and the forest, far removed from the buzzing of the helicopters over Franz Joseph.
This was a well organised outing and Laura was an exceptional guide. Before we left the office we were offered sun cream and insect repellent which I thought was a good idea, This outing was without doubt one of the best experiences we had during our holiday in NZ.
It was also great to receive some nice photos afterwards without having to dig further into our pockets!!
