New Zealand Kayaking and Canoeing Holidays

Sea Kayaking Tours & Canoeing Holidays in New Zealand

There is a great range of Sea Kayaking and Canoeing Holidays in New Zealand. You could try sea kayaking from Paihia in Northland, and explore the many islands of sub-tropical Bay of Islands. Also in the North Island, the Whanganui River Journey is the only canoeing trip to be part of the "Great Walks" network of New Zealand.
In New Zealand's South Island are Abel Tasman National Park and the Queen Charlotte Track. Both regions are extremely popular for combined kayaking and walking trips. Exploring these parks by both land and sea gives an entirely different perspective to your kayaking holiday.
