Okarito Lagoon is New Zealand's largest unmodified wetland and home to large numbers of native and endemic bird species (over 70 species of bird have been recorded here). Kayaks are a great way to peacefully explore the wetland and view the abundant birdlife, in a shallow and sheltered lagoon environment suitable for all ages and abilities. Okarito township is just a 20 minutes drive from Franz Josef Glacier. We provide expert, guided kayak trips and freedom rental kayaking with a focus on the ecology of the lagoon and the outstanding scenery. After exploring the open tidal wetlands of the lagoon, kayakers can paddle deep into the rainforest river channels of the Okarito river delta, accessible only by kayak. A true wilderness experience.
