Adventure Te Aroha offers self guided Kayak trips including historic town tours. Gently paddle or just let the river take you as you wind your way down Te Waihou with majestic views of the mountain range and a wide variety of bird life.

From its source at the blue springs to where it enters the Hauraki gulf, Te Waihou winds its way gently northwards.

Your guide will take you on a tour of the historic town of Te Aroha where you will learn about some of the rich culture, history and wild geology of the area. The tour then travels to Waiorongomi to where a gold mining settlement used to thrive.

Once at your departure point on the Waihou river you will be given expert instruction on how to navigate your kayak down the river safely.

This section of river flows mainly through rural land, don't forget to look up and take in the majestic views of the mountain range a truly fantastic sight from the river perspective.
