Taupo Kayaking Adventures, Taupo

#3 of 9 in Adventure in Taupo
When I took over the original 'kayak to the carvings company' in Lake Taupo, I combined three of my passions – the outdoors, kayaking, and people.

Originally known as Wilderness Escapes, I renamed the business Taupo Kayaking Adventures to capture the essence of what we were offering – tailored adventures around this beautiful and historic area. I have continued the proud traditions of Wilderness Escapes and its commitment to the highest quality service, with safety paramount at all times.

With a team of experienced, passionate guides, our adventures are open to everyone – from a single kayaker or walker, to a small group – families, friends, clubs, corporates, school or church groups, through to backpackers and camper-van travellers, from beginners to experienced kayakers.

Choose one of our core tours, or let us help you design a trip tailored around your interests, and how you want to experience our stunning region. Our purpose-built trailer means we can access many major waterways around Taupo, and transport can be arranged to all entry and exit points, offering a greater level of flexibility.

We love to share this magical part of New Zealand, and give people their own unforgettable experience. Please get in touch and see what we can do for you.

  • I had a great time. Philip and Oliver were our guides. Philip was knowledgeable and friendly to all of us. Oliver was kind and daring. I highly commend these guys for keeping us safe and looking after us. 5 stars.
  • Really pleased! Was able to book onto a tour tour last minute and the staff being really happy for accomodate to me and my partner. The actual trip was great fun and the staff were very friendly and knew a lot about the area. At the start of the trip when I heard about that the kayaks had motors, I wasnt sure what to think, but I can say that they definitely added to make the trip a great experience- allowing us to relax but keep up with the rest of the group at the same time. Thank you to everyone who works at Taupo Kayaking Adventures! It was a great day! Will definitely recommend to our friends!
