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.
