The family/staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and nice and definitely made the experience. No matter what the level of sporting prowess everyone was included at all times and most of the way back you simply float along the river in the dark, surrounded by glowworms and underneath the stars - which is an experience in itself! It's not an experience you can capture in pictures or even words but can't recommend highly enough!Ems P
Fantastic trip. A true New Zealand family run business. Highly recommend. I did this trip with my adult daughter and had a wonderful time. Felt very safe and guides were very knowledgeable and a bit "cheesy" with their jokes! Very organised and well run. I like that they ensured that everyone had the appropriate clothing and were able to provide it if people were not fully prepared.I. Muir
This is a great trip for beginners and experienced alike. They have all the gear for a safe and comfortable night trip. The prep and management is excellent. The paddling was easy that night and quite delightful going up. Drifting back was SPECTACULAR in the dark. Going through the cathedral like gorge surrounded by glow worms bought on a hush to everyone. Wish I lived closer!Kym-Lin W
If you really need convincing...
Who would've thought that the sight of bioluminescent fungus gnats dangling mucus-soaked strands over water in an attempt to ensnare and eat passing insects would be, well, beautiful?
It totally is, though. Glow-worms are one of New Zealand's must-see natural treasures, and what better way to see them than a twilight kayak ride around scenic Lake Karapiro?
Your adventure plays out like this:
Starting late afternoon / early evening at Lake District Adventures' base on Horahora Rd, paddle over the old submerged Horahora Dam that produced electricity for the early Waihi goldfields.
Learn the history of the village that serviced the dam. Enjoy the twilight and silence of being on the water as night arrives over the lake.
Then up the Pokaiwhenua Stream and through the canyon, carved out by water over many hundreds of years. Ferns and trees drape over you. Bird life is all around. If you look up, make sure you keep your mouth closed!
When darkness falls, float silently back downstream, being guided by the glow-worms on either side, sparkling like Christmas lights.
Lake District Adventures are passionate about encouraging people to get out and about in the natural beauty on their doorstep. They can provide you with everything you need for your outing, including overpants, neoprene shoes, flotation devices and dry bags, not to mention their stable sit-on kayaks, which are safe and comfortable even for people with no kayaking experience.
