After pickup at your hotel in Rotorua, travel about 20 minutes to the kayaking headquarters where your expert guide provides a safety talk and paddle instructions. Once you’re ready, grab your gear and head to the launch site at nearby Lake Rotoiti.

Follow your guide as you paddle at a leisurely pace across the picturesque Lake Rotoiti, gliding past holiday homes that dot the lakeshore. Hear the history of the area from your knowledgeable guide, including local Maori legends, and facts about native plant life such as the Pohutukawa, aka New Zealand's version of the Christmas tree.

Within an hour or so, arrive at a lakeside spot that features natural hot springs! The thermal waters feed into several hot pools of varying temperatures. Enjoy more than two hours to relax here, soaking weary muscles in the hot springs and swimming in the lake. Then tuck into a picnic barbecue dinner that might include steak, gourmet sausages, a choice of salads, and a cheesecake dessert.

As evening starts to fall, return to your kayak and paddle to a cave that is accessible only by boat. Inside, take in the surreal beauty of hundreds of glowworms shimmering on the walls around you.

Continue paddling about 25 minutes to a second cave where koura, small freshwater crayfish, are often spotted. Spend about 15 minutes in this cave, then hit the homestretch of your kayak trip with a 20-minute paddle back to the boat launch. Head back to headquarters where you can change into dry clothing. You are returned to your Rotorua hotel after a magical evening on Lake Rotoiti.
