Taupo Kayaking Adventures run kayaking tours in the Taupo area that include trips both on Lake Taupo and on the Waikato River.
The 14m-high Māori carving on the cliff face overlooking Lake Taupo at Mine Bay is one of the highlights of their half-day kayaking tour that starts in Acacia Bay.
Full-day tours also take in Lake Taupo’s iconic Māori carving and continue to the volcanic Masons Rock with time for a swim in the crystal-clear lake.
There is also a range of other kayaking trips including a gentle paddle up the Waikato River to the bungee jumping platform and a geothermal kayak and walk adventure where you approch the Orakei Korako Geothermal Park via the Waikato River. This trip includes a 1–1½ hour walk through the geothermal park.
