Beautiful native beech and podocarp forests blanket the surrounding mountains and valleys. Snow highlights the high mountain peaks throughout most of the year. Unique bird and wildlife only adds to the many natural attractions.
For a unique experience in Fiordland, forget about the crowds and cruise boats – be a little different and come join us on a small group guided day or overnight tour on the water in a sea kayak. There is time to relax, absorb the surroundings and share an intimate experience with Nature.
For those with suitable kayaking and outdoor experience we offer kayak rentals on Lake Manapouri – a chance to enjoy and explore the many coves, islands, sandy beaches and spectacular mountain views that the lake offers.
We are based in Manapouri (20km south of Te Anau) where a range of accommodation is available – this includes camping grounds, backpackers, motels, self contained houses, a hotel and a range of B& B’s. There is a local convenience store with postal agency, a fuel and service station, hairdresser, local information offices and Cafés.
Manapouri is a unique place to stay, the perfect departure point for tours to Doubtful Sound – one of NZ’s icons and Lake Manapouri itself often described as New Zealand’s ‘most beautiful lake’. We guarantee your visit to Lake Manapouri and Doubtful Sound will be one to treasure for a long time to come.
