Take a guided Kayak Tour on Lake Karapiro. Starting at Riversie Adventures base on Horahora Road, paddle along the southern edge of Lake Karapiro & over the old submerged Horahora Village & the Dam that produced electricity for the early Waihi goldfields. Learn the history of the village and enjoy the serenity of being on the water. Paddle slowly up the Pokaiwhenua Stream and through the canyon carved out by water over many hundreds of years. It almost has a pre-historic feel to it. The ferns & trees drape over you and bird life is all around. Perfect for families and groups who want a relaxing time out on the lake.
