About the Experience

Switch into winter mode and snap up this picturesque treat from The Boatshed Kayaks. This fantastic kayak adventure offers something very special for the whole family. Starting from the Epworth camp, you'll kayak your way down a truly beautiful section of the Waikato River, to the Pokaiwhenua stream. With stunning twilight lake views, you head under the Pokaiwhenua Bridge and into the glow worm canyon. Draped with native ferns, the canyon offers a true slice of New Zealand Beauty, and as the light fades away the unique incandescence of the glow worms start to shine from the surrounding walls. After a quick glass of some of New Zealand’s finest wines (hot chocolates for the kids) complemented with some tasty cheeses and sweet marshmallows, it’s back in the boats, as you drift slowly down stream using only the light from the glow worms. Viewing glow worms from a kayak on the surface of the world is a whole different experience from seeing them inside a cave like at Waitomo. Start your winter season on a glowing note and nab a voucher today!
