Kayaking on Lake Mapourika


The West Coast Tourism Board's catchphrase is 'untamed, natural wilderness' and these are words that spring to mind when out on Lake Mapourika. There are no cafes, houses, marinas or generally anything man-made (apart from a boat ramp and jetty) on the shores of the lake and that's what makes it so special. The ancient forest grows right to the waters edge and the water is often very reflective making for awesome photo opportunities, especially with the Southern Alps as a backdrop. The best way to get out on this lake is with Glacier Country Kayaks even if you've never kayaked before. The kayaks are the super floaty, non-tippy types and it's easy to paddle about on the flat water.
