Kayak Kinloch

Adventure around the head of Lake Whakatipu with an experienced guide at Kinloch, starting from where the Dart River meets the lake, surrounded by mountains the whole time. They offer 1 hour and 2 hour trips and can customise trips to suit your needs.

Kayak Kinloch will give you a different perspective of the land around you and help you slow down to appreciate the quiet surrounding you. Enjoy the native bush, birdlife and serenity of going where very few people venture. Delicious morning or afternoon refreshments are provided for 2hr trips; all dietary requirements can be accommodated.

The restaurant at Kinloch offers hearty meals to help you recoup some of the calories you’ve burnt out on the water. There are also plenty of walks and activities nearby to make a day of it.

Child prices valid to 14yrs. Children under 12 must be in a kayak with an adult unless experienced. There are only 2 double kayaks so only 2 children under 12 can be on one trip.
