Appreciate the convenience of a complimentary pick-up and return transfer from your central Rotorua accommodation or the Rotorua I site at 1167 Fenton Street, Rotorua. Departing Rotorua a 15-20 minute drive begins during which time you will meet your small-group tour members as you descend to the lake which is home to hidden cave and rock formations perfect for exploration. Upon arrival at the lake your guides will unload all the necessary equipment as you enjoy the beach before you take to the waters on an amazing stand-up paddle board twilight tour. Choose your favorite color glow stick to remain visible to your guide when night falls as you paddle-board your way to discover hidden caves home to amazing galaxy formations of glow-worms. With knowledgeable and expert local guides ensuring you master stand-up paddle boarding quickly and keeping you together and on-course in the dark, you are sure to have an unforgettable night. The return shuttle transfer back to Rotorua is a time to relive the highlights of the experience and form lasting memories of your tour.
