Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Franz Josef Tours – Franz Josef Glacier

Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Franz Josef Tours – Franz Josef Glacier

by | Aug 14, 2019

Summer is just around the corner and our SUP tours are back for another season!

The Lake is beginning to warm up and it shouldn’t be to long before we will start getting back towards Summer temps of 20+ degrees! We will be running our SUP tours in the morning and afternoons to make the most of the calmer waters, which are perfect for beginner paddlers.

We will be running two Guided SUP Tours this season:

Guided SUP Adventure:

Enjoy 2 Hours of Stand -Up Paddle board instruction as well as the company of your tour guide to take you out on the stunning reflective waters of Lake Mapourika. Learn about the region, the glaciers and the kiwi conservation of the area as you Stand Up Paddle! Mornings or late afternoons are the opportune time to experience the glassy waters and stunning reflections.

NZ$85 per Adult $65 Child (Under 15 Years)

Boat and SUP the Kiwi Sanctuary: 

Enjoy a scenic boat cruise across Lake Mapourika before jumping on your SUP. The sheltered shoreline of the Kiwi Sanctuary is where you’ll learn the ropes of stand-up paddling!  Gaze across the lake at the amazing scenic glacier and mountain backdrop as you glide across the calm glassy water.  You will then follow your guide into a narrow estuary amidst lush native rain forest and into the heart of Okarito Kiwi Sanctuary. This is a Stand Up Paddle adventure like no other. An absolute must-do for one of NZ’s fastest growing water sports! No experience required, although all participants must be able to swim.

NZ$145 Adult $95 Child (Under 15 years)


Get in touch to book a tour today to enjoy the lake’s secret spots at the prime times of the day.

As Summer approaches we will also be starting SUP rentals to take advantage of the perfect weather. Keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook Page and Instagram for updates!
