The Manapouri Expedition

The Manapouri Expedition can be guided or self-guided and will give you a first-hand glimpse of what these little boats make possible. The trip is a one-way journey from Te Anau to Manapouri and offers a great mix of both river and lake paddling. Before You’ll cruise down the very scenic Waiau River into Lake Manapouri we will give you some professional training to make sure you are happy in and on the water. After that, you’ll be paddling your way down the river and across the lake and its stunning islands for an ascent of the iconic Monument. Each night, you’ll stay either in classic kiwi huts or make camp on pristine, secluded sandy beaches. If you need a bit more adventure try our Hollyford/Pyke Expedition.
