Detailed Description

Enjoy a 5 hour tour, where the meeting point with your guide will be at unit 2, 876 Acacia Bay Road, Acacia Bay, Taupo, to begin this incredible adventure on the Tutukau bridge, which takes you through the extraordinary landscapes and the natural beauty of the gorge, beyond the hidden valley in Orakei Korako, a geothermal park where you can see geysers, silica terraces, and mud pools boiling your kayak.

On the way you will stop at the challenge of the squeeze where you will land your kayak in deep water up to your knees, your guide will take you to a narrow gap in the cliff walls where we will begin to maneuver through narrow cracks, climb rocks and walk to through the warm waist in deep water in the middle of an impressive native New Zealand forest and where you can stand under waterfalls of hot water. With a small climb, you can take the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere while relaxing in the hot springs of a natural-heated pool.

Then you will return to the kayaks to embark for your next destination of descent to the paradisiac valley, which is a large lagoon with small hot springs of thermal water that leads to the ohakuri lake. Here you can kayak through the hot pools and feel the temperature below you, while surrounded by farmland and natural forests. At the end of the tour, you will return to the same place where you started.
