Lake District Adventures is a small family business created in mid 2013. It is all about utilising the natural attractions of the Central & South Waikato lakes and surrounding areas.
Our main motivation is: "How can we help more people enjoy this area which has so much to offer yet is quite often unknown".

Walk, Ride or Paddle the Trail!
If you have a desire to have a relaxing or adventurous day, 2 days, or more, breathing clean air & leaving city stresses behind - let us introduce you to our backyard.
