Why do we love this

We love the epic views you get to see on this trip. Paddling with the Southern Alps as a backdrop is an awesome experience! 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Get ready to journey along the naturistic surrounds of Lake Wakatipu! This safari will introduce you to some of Queenstown's most serene locations, guiding you through secluded scenes of South New Zealand and giving you the opportunity to both explore and relax among these stunning surrounds.

Itinerary
The tour will begin with an easy 45-minute paddle across the royal blue waters of Lake Wakatipu, New Zealand's third largest lake. You will journey through the islands among the breathtaking mountainous backdrop of the Southern Alps. Cruising across on the kayak will be a blissful way to appreciate the glorious alpine scenery.

 

Launching from either Stoney Creek or Lake Face Creek near Glenorchy, the safari's highly trained and knowledgeable guides will lead you to a concealed beach on either Pig or Pigeon Island and from here you will be guided through the magical surrounds of New Zealand beech forest. Tucked away in this naturistic marvel, the thriving native birdlife (including the endangered New Zealand Weka) and unique vegetation will inspire your adventure even further, and you will be given the opportunity to observe and explore the secrets of the forest.

 

Once you've indulged in photography and peaceful observation of the scenery, you can relax and enjoy refreshments on the beach before kayaking back to the mainland (another easy 45-minute paddle).

 

Pick up will be at Station Building, Camp Street in Queenstown, where you will then travel by coach to the Glenorchy Islands. Please be ready 5 minutes before start time.

 

Sea kayaks and all safety and kayaking equipment is included. Dietary requirements can also be accommodated for. A dry bag for your camera will also be provided.

 

Start times will be at 8 am for Summer tours and 10 am for Winter tours.
