Did the Swingers Combination of bush walk and sea kayaking. Superb scenery: excellent guides full of information on history, natural history of geysers. Perfect for anyone of average fitness - no kayaking experience needed.

Not so commercial as the rent of kayak rentals but good equipment, good programmes. Only the personnel seems to be in a hurry all the time! They do not understand that English couldn't be your home language.

Do lots of research before you come. Take advice from those who know. Be prepared to ask questions and ask for help. N. Zealanders are very helpful and friendly. Need lots of bugspray. Sandflies are evil, especially when chilling out on beaches on the West Coast such as Gillespies Beach
