At Manapouri you’re surrounded by the majesty of Fiordland on all sides. Explore the lake environment or organise an expedition to Doubtful Sound.
Situated at the edge of Fiordland National Park, the lakeside town of Manapouri provides a base for journeys into the glacier-carved wilderness. Lake Manapouri is the second deepest lake in New Zealand and has a large hydro power station at the end of its west arm. The creation of the power station in 1959 improved access to Doubtful Sound (a fiord), which you can explore by sea kayak or cruise boat. Some guided tours involve a bit of everything – hiking, kayaking and sailing. Power station tours can be arranged. You can also explore Lake Manapouri by kayak or take to the hiking trails – the Circle Track, Kepler Track and remote Dusky Track are local favourites.
