Group activities with Rotorua Paddle Tours -Whether it’s team-building, corporate functions, conference groups, or school groups, we can tailor all of our trips to fit your group’s size and budget. From small groups of 5 on up to larger groups of people, we are happy to work with you to accommodate your needs. From raft racing down a calm stretch of moving water, to stand up paddle board relays, from out-rigging tours to native bush excursions, all topped off with a great coffee and cake at our local store, let our team show you a great time out and about in Okere Falls! The Okere Falls community is at the heart of some of the best adventure activities New Zealand has to offer. With a rich cultural history, and spectacular scenery, this is the perfect spot to come and let your hair down. We have plenty to offer!
Native Bush walk - we will discover New Zealand’s beautiful native forests with information from our local, qualified Medical herbalist who has been trained in Rongoa (Maori herbs) where we taste test and look into the medicinal uses of our rich Native fauna and its history.
Raft racing - we start on a scenic slow-moving stretch of water surrounded by historical maraes, native birds and amazing wildlife. The Ohau Channel is a beautiful and safe spot to run any activity.
Stand up paddle boarding – Perfect for beginners on up to those who like to push themselves out of their comfort zone, this is a great activity for team building. Once you have grasped how to use the paddle boards, we split into teams and race SUP relays! We also have the XL board which fits up to ten paddlers, this is a great team building activity.
Out-rigging - a traditional Polynesian sport great for longer paddles. We offer a group paddle over to our local hot pools, where we can relax and soak up the beautiful atmosphere. Manupirua hot pools are only accessible by boat, and a well- deserved break after our out-rigger paddle around Lake Rotoiti!
The Okere Falls store is our amazing local Store, and a great place to end to our sessions. The Store offers some of the finest German food available in NZ including a wide range of specialty beers, espresso and cake. There are many options to explore.
If you would like any combination of the above activity's? We can tailor make a session for your group, just ask!
