This fantastic kayak adventure offers something very special for the whole family. Kayak down a truly beautiful section of the Waikato River, to the Pokaiwhenua stream and into the glow-worm canyon. Draped with native ferns, the canyon offers a true slice of New Zealand beauty, and as the light fades away the unique incandescence of the glow-worms start to shine from the surrounding walls. After a quick glass of some of New Zealand’s finest wines (hot drink for the kids) complimented with some tasty cheeses had over the warmth of a campfire, it’s back in the boats, as we drift slowly down stream using only the light from the glow-worms.
