What a well run shop that takes you on an amazing ride to see the glow worms. Through the gorge, around the lake, and back again quietly in the pitch dark.

Felt safe the entire time and loved the entire trip and crew.

We found this adventure offer by chance- we actually were looking forward to see Hobbiton but it wasn't fully booked. As an alternative plan we decided for some sports- and their glow warm kayak tour was breathtaking! The tour starts before dark, you paddle up the river and when it gets dark you let the kayak flow back to the base. Passing through passages, you have glow warms on the sides and it is an experience that will stay with you! 100% recommended!

I had done this before without my wife but had to do it again so that she could enjoy it. This tour is well organised and the guides are very good about making it both entertaining and safe. The drift down through the glow worms is well worth the relatively small amount of effort to paddle upstream to get there.
This is a must do tour.

I'm glad I was lucky to catch few spots last minute and experienced wonderful trip and stunning view. Special thanks to Mike-he was funny, attentive and caring. He told us a lot about that area and was patiently waiting for beginners' kayaks.
