Explore the Mighty Waikato River in one day!
Hike + Bike + Kayak all while being guided by glow worms
Meet at Riverside Adventures Base to get on the shuttle and leave for Jones Landing where you walk 5kms back to the Arapuni Dam - make sure you head up to the Lake Arapuni lookout! View the pink hues of the ignimbrite bluffs of Upper Lake Arapuni where we will meet you at the Arapuni Dam with your bikes and you will make your way back to our base. Stopping at the historical Arapuni Swingbridge is a must whether you ride (or walk) across it. Once back at Riverside Adventures base (BYO picnic or head to nearby Tirau).
Starting late afternoon or early evening, enjoy spectacular sights you can only experience by kayak. Paddle slowly through the Pokaiwhenua canyon and, when darkness falls, be guided by the magical titiwai - New Zealand glow worms - on either side.
