Kayaking in New Zealand

 

Sea or fresh-water kayaking in New Zealand is a magical way of exploring the many thousands of kilometers of coast and internal water ways. The on-water perspective delivers you (or rather you power yourself) to off-the-grid places and little visited corners. Our selection of First Light Travel itineraries will steer you to some stunning kiwi Kayaking.

Just imagine a holiday away from it all, no cell phones, no television, no shops, no traffic.

Paddling in a canoe has never been more relaxing since the river does not have a strong current which makes it the perfect trip for everyone. Words cannot describe this magical journey.
