Lake Manapouri is the second deepest lake in New Zealand and has a large hydro power station at the end of its west arm. The creation of the power station in 1959 improved access to Doubtful Sound (a fiord), which you can explore by sea kayak or cruise boat. Tours of the power station can also be arranged.
Explore Lake Manapouri by kayak or take to the hiking trails – the Circle Track,Kepler Track and remote Dusky Track are local favourites. Some guided tours involve a bit of everything – hiking, kayaking and sailing.
