Kayaking gift experience with hot pools Rotorua Join us for a guided Kayak trip to the spectacular Manupirua Springs Hot Pools on Lake Rotoiti. Paddle down the Ohau Channel and across Lake Rotoiti to this amazing spot only accessable 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 around 1 hour each way. The trip starts on the Ohau Channel. We paddle down the channel and onto to Lake Rotoiti with a leisurely paddle to the hot pools. There is plenty of time to relax and enjoy the hot pools before paddling back to base.
