Glowworm Trip

This fantastic kayak adventure offers something very special for the whole family. We start from the Epworth camp and kayak our way down a truly beautiful section of the Waikato River, to the Pokewhaenua stream. With stunning twilight lake views we head under the Pokewhaenua Bridge 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. Viewing glow-worms from a kayak on the surface of the world is a whole different experience from seeing them inside a cave like at Waitomo.
