Yesterday, while Franz Josef Tours was out catching salmon … our guide Jonny took out a fabulous morning trip in the perfect drizzly day conditions. Here’s the photos from his trip which depicts Lake Mapourika at it’s finest on a calm moody morning.
A small group took off from the Jetty (sitting only just underwater now!) into a misty wonderland! Beautiful reflections were had on the way across, and in the Kiwi Sanctuary as always …
The lake is pretty high at the moment, which makes for new and unusual kayak routes. This photo below is the group paddling through a rainforest shrub called “Kiki” which generally grows up like a vine over the tallest canopy trees. These guys got to paddle through it!
And they also spotted some long finned eels feeding along the shoreline!
Bookings are picking up in February, like always at this time of year we recommend forward bookings! BOOK your kayak trip today!
