Kayaking in Taupo

Kayaking Taupo’s trout-laden rivers and streams, or Lake Taupo’s aquamarine waters is the perfect way to discover the region’s hidden beaches and bays.

Journey through towering volcanic cliffs as you peacefully float down the aquamarine waters of the Waikato River, or spend the day on a kayak tour to the Mine Bay Maori rock carvings at Mine Bay. Kayaking is the closest you will get to the impressive 14m carving towering above Lake Taupo.

Kayaking is perfect for the whole family with trips of varying length.
