Add the hotpools to your rafting experience.
The ultimate combo, white water rafting followed by a hot pool at Manupiria Springs Hot Pools. Nestled on the shores of Lake Rotoiti, Lake Rotoiti Hot Pools is a unique Aotearoa New Zealand experience. Being accessible only by boat or by air is what keeps this haven so unspoiled and pristine.  

Enjoy the beauty of the surrounding native flora and fauna, with seven mineral hot pools to soak in and the clear blue lake waters to cool down in. Transfer across Lake Rotoiti by water taxi, which leaves from just across the road from the Rafting base. Then just select the mineral hot pool based on your temperature preference, and slip in to soak away your worries – awakening the mind, body, and soul.

Head down to the lake for an exhilarating dive off the jetty or whizz down the slide into New Zealand’s biggest plunge pool! Embark on a scenic walk up into the hills behind the pools to admire the native bush and take in the stunning views of Lake Rotoiti from the top. Grab a bite to eat at the fully licensed cafe, where they also have a variety of wine and beer available.

Picnics are welcome, with outdoor seating and BBQs available for use.

These amazing natural elements are available for you and your family to enjoy.
