Kayaking gift experience with hot pools Lake Rotoiti Join us for a guided Kayak trip to the spectacular Manupirua Springs Hot Pools on Lake Rotoiti. This amazing spot is situated right on the lake edge and only accessible by boat. On arrival at our base we will get you kitted up in the paddling gear before a short drive to the lake. After a paddle and safety brief we paddle across scenic Lake Rotoiti to this amazing spot only accessible by boat. Situated right on the lake edge there are a range of hot pools of varying temperatures all fed from a natural hot spring. Paddling time is usually around 1 hour each way. There is plenty of time to relax and enjoy the hot pools or swim in the lake before enjoying a leisurely return paddle. During the paddle your guide will tell you some of the history of the area and some local Maori legend’s, we also have the option of visiting a cave where you may be able to glimpse a couple of glow worms. Allow 4 hours. Complimentary pick up is available from your central Rotorua accommodation or, if you prefer, you can meet us at River Rats Base at Rotorua Airport.
