Just 15 mins from Cambridge – starting late afternoon / early evening this 3 hour experience starts from Lake District Adventures base on Horahora Rd. Guests paddle along the southern edge of Lake Karapiro & over the old submerged Horahora Village & the Dam that produced electricity for the early Waihi goldfields.
Learn the history of the village and enjoy the twilight & silence of being on the water as night arrives over the lake. As the day draws to an end, paddle slowly up the Pokaiwhenua Stream and through the canyon carved out by water over many hundreds of years. Ferns & trees drape over you. Bird life is all around. If you look up – make sure you keep your mouth closed! When darkness falls, float silently back downstream, being guided by the glow worms on either side sparkling like Christmas lights.
Guests may be picked up from Cambridge i-SITE or their accommodation.
Bookings essential. Min numbers apply. Min age is generally 8yrs – contact company.
