Awesome and views outstanding.
Tracey_B, Feb. 2024
We would highly recommend our Kayak adventure. Staff were great and so informative. Beautiful views, glad we done it.
Antwort des Veranstalters, Feb. 2024
Thank you Tracey for the lovely review. Great to hear you had a good time out on the lake. The views from out on the water are truly breath taking. Thanks for joining us. Dee
A little underwhelming
Mira_G, Feb. 2024
The guides were wonderful but this is a rather boring and unattractive lake to kayak on. The water is brown and not much to see in the way of scenery. There are many places that are much better for a kayak tour. The free photos were a nice touch.
Antwort des Veranstalters, Feb. 2024
Hi Mira, Sorry to hear that you found our tour underwhelming! We're happy to hear you enjoyed our guides and the free photos. The lake is what's known as a black-water lake (making it actually quite unique compared to other kayak venues in NZ). The black water is formed thanks to the rainfall collecting tannin from the forest and staining the water dark like tea, this effect also creates a mirror-lake effect. Often times the water reflects the scenery like a perfect mirror. The photo you posted along with your review is from mirror-creek where we paddle into the Jurassic untouched rainforest in it's pristine state, as well as kiwi conservation area for NZ's rarest kiwi bird, there's not many places like it in the country and this makes it part of a UNESCO world heritage site! Sorry to hear the scenery was disappointing, I think perhaps it depends what you're looking for in a kayak tour. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels around the country. Kind regards Bronwyn
Nothing like a paddle in a gentle rain👍
Lawrence_P, Jan. 2024
Had a great paddle in a gentle rain! Very enjoyable. Our guide Dillon was very good. Kayaks were very stable and easy to paddle. Though we did not have views of the mountains due to low clouds the scenery around the lake was wonderful
Antwort des Veranstalters, Jan. 2024

A paddle not to be missed

Beautiful scenery, the lake was calm and serene. Guides were helpful and knowledgeable which greatly enhanced the experience. I highly recommend.

Thank you for the lovely review! The lake does offer a peaceful experience! Safe travels Dee
quiet and relaxed journey for kayaking newbies
Eric_z, Okt. 2023
we are not athletic people and did not have any experience with kayaking before. However, it is quite an easy journey to take on the lake since it is very calm water compared to other lakes or sea kayaking. That being said, there is quite a lot of paddling and our guide offered to tow us to keep up with the whole group. The view of the lake is simply stunning. Highly recommend going for the morning tour, the lake is just like a mirror reflecting the sky and beautiful mountain. Oh get some insect repelant since there is an awful lot of sand flies close to the water surface.
Antwort des Veranstalters, Okt. 2023
Hi Eric, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. The morning generally does offer beautiful calm waters, glad you were able to experience this. Safe travels Dee
Stunning kayak excursion
Sarah_K, Aug. 2023
Fantastic family kayak trip with Marcus - the most stunning views and reflection of mountains in the lake. Lovely bird life including a black swan with cygnets!
Antwort des Veranstalters, Sept. 2023
Kia Ora Sarah, Thank you for the lovely review. Always great to get families out on the lake and have a true NZ experience together. Definitely never tire of the view from the lake!! Dee

Good afternoon fun
David_R, März 2023
Ari was a great guide, good fun and Knowledgeable. He made the trip more interesting with his local knowledge. We were a group of 4 who are all over 60 and we coped with the physical excursion. I would highly recommend this trip.
Antwort des Veranstalters, März 2023
Kia ora David, Thanks for your 5 star review. We agree, Ariel is awesome and carries lots of knowledge about the area. Ngā mihi, Suhas
Your advertising is...
John_G, Feb. 2023
Your advertising is deceptive. It shows kayakers in front of Franz Joseph Glacier when in fact it’s miles away and the photo assumes the kayaking would be on a glacial lake. A complete waste of my money and time.
Antwort des Veranstalters, Feb. 2023
Hi John, We're a little confused as to what photos you find deceptive. All of our photos we use for advertising have been taken during our kayak tours on Lake Mapourika ( these photos are taken by our guides on the tour, which we provide free to all customers). So there's not a single photo we own that's "false" advertising, they are taken exactly where our tours take place. We also don't say in any of our advertising that we kayak towards or "up to" the glacier. We promote the fact we paddle in a rainforest area, a kiwi conservation area and that one clear days we can see glaciers on the mountains at the back of the lake (inlcuding the Franz Josef's neve) which is all true. So it's a shame that you had a false pretense about the activity, and I'm really gutted that you didn't enjoy the rainforest and kiwi conservation which is a tour highlight for most of our customers. If there's something you found online that you think is misleading, please send this over to me: admin@franzjoseftours.co.nz and we'd love to know about it so we can correct the issue. Kind regards Bronwyn
Kayak adventure from Franz Josef
Mary_R, Nov. 2022
What a lovely afternoon on lake Mapourika. Our guide Ariel was fantastic, he was able to tell us so much about the wildlife and the area and added much to the enjoyment of the trip. Really stunning place and great fun. Thank you!
Antwort des Veranstalters, Nov. 2022
Hi Mary, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! Ariel is full of local knowledge and has many interesting facts about the flora and fauna out on the lake so we're pleased he was able to share that with you. Enjoy the rest of your travels around NZ! Kind regards, Teana
Exceptional experience
Narelle_K, Nov. 2022
Ariel and Taylor our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Ariel played a conch shell on the sheltered Bay which echoed. Very moving. A great experience. Highly recommended.

This kayak tour is a must-do...
Rahul C, Feb. 2018
This kayak tour is a must-do activity while at Franz Josef Glacier Village. Lake Mapourika is a spectacular glacial lake, surrounded by temperate rain forest-covered hills. The tour keeps right on schedule, with safety being the primary concern of the tour guides, and your enjoyment of the tour coming in a close second. For the most part, you'll be paddling your kayaks without commentary from the tour guides. Once you cross the lake, however, the tour guides provide nice insights about the origins of the lake and the forests and the wildlife. We paddled up a somewhat narrow creek, and stopped to listen to the tour guides about the various plants and original human inhabitants. We were lucky to get reasonably close to the somewhat elusive New Zealand White Heron. Our guides were Johnny aka Woody because he wore a hat similar to Woody in Pixar's Toy Story and Bom Bom Brandon?. Both were entertaining and informative, and clearly love what they do. Wonderful scenery, good physical activity, and a learning experience. What are you waiting for?

harris g, März 2017
We had an awesome 4 hour kayak/walk on Lake Manapouri, including 90 minutes of kayaking each way across beautiful lake, with a one hour walk through bush to the cafe, where our guide had set up coffee/tea/hot chocolate. Our guide, Mike, was wonderful, taking photos of the kayakers in each of the 4 kayaks. The kayaks are great, with a rudder and pedals, aprons so you stay dry, and back support. Best of all, the company has the only permit on the lake, so there were no other kayaks on the lake for the majority of the trip. It was a definite highlight on our spectacular New Zealand vacation.
