The Manapouri Expedition can be guided or self-guided and will give you a first-hand taste of the packrafting world.
The 3-day trip is a one-way journey from Te Anau to Manapouri and offers a great mix of both river and lake paddling. Before you embark on the journey, we’ll give you some professional training to make sure you are comfortable and confident in and on the water.
After that, you’ll cruise down the very scenic Waiau River into Lake Manapouri, paddling your way across the lake, exploring stunning beaches and isthmuses. Each night, you’ll stay either in classic kiwi huts or make camp on pristine, secluded sandy beaches.
