Kayak tours are a great way to experience Lake Taupo as well as the region's rivers and streams. Get in a kayak with a mate and take a guided tour across Lake Taupo around Rangatira Point to the impressive ten metre high Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay, which is only accessible by water. The Great Lake Taupo region also has its fair share of stunning rivers and streams that are perfect for exploring by kayak. Float along the Tongariro or Waikato Rivers or the famous trout laden Tokaanu Stream in Turangi. There are several companies offering guided kayak trips throughout the region.
