We offer a magical Guided Kayak Glow Worm Tour - not to be missed! Or Paddle, Walk or Ride the Trails of the South Waikato region. Hire mountain bikes, kayaks and SUP's. We have a shuttle to take you and your bike to your start point on the trail.

Paddle, Walk or Ride the Waikato River Trail in the South Waikato region and cycle trails of the surrounding areas.

These trails cover about 100km and wind their way through New Zealand native bush, exotic forest, historic landmarks, interesting rock formations and geological delights and along the rivers edge.

Walk or ride through grassed farmland, open reserves, over swing bridges above the river, over boardwalks above wetlands, and take in expansive lake and river views.

Our Kayak Glow Worm tour is not to be missed. We float slowly through the Pokai Whenua Canyon in silence and experience the magic of the Glow Worms covering the walls entirely. It's a an experience you will remember forever.
