About this tour: Enjoy the wonderful calm Lake McLaren where serenity takes a new name. Gently paddle a kayak past a multitude of birdlife, literally within paddles' reach. Sheer cliffs break the stark lush native bush as gentle streams enter the lake's edge. Kayak into the stunning Mangapapa canyon with water as deep as the cliffs on the sides, where the native bush appears to touch and form a cave. The Tauranga Scenic Lake McLaren Kayak Tour is a must-do Tauranga tour activity.
