The Moke Lake Experience is the perfect way to escape the crowds and immerse yourself in New Zealand's world-renowned natural beauty!

This picturesque destination is located just 20 minutes from Queenstown and is well worth the scenic drive out! Your friendly guide will pick you up from Queenstown and share some local knowledge as you make your way to the lake.

On arrival, you'll set off on a self-guided paddle across the peaceful calm waters, taking in the idyllic scenery and exploring at your own pace.

On clear days, Lake Moke is famous for transforming into a mirror of the surrounding mountains, a truly remarkable sight.

First time kayaking or using an SUP? No problem! Before setting out on the water, we'll give you a quick safety briefing and run down on how to use the kayak/SUP. We'll make sure you are comfortable and confident before you take off on your paddle!

We'll have a few refreshments waiting for you once you get back on land before we make our way back to Queenstown.

A fantastic way to take your sightseeing at a more relaxed pace, and the perfect way to see and explore this rural slice of Kiwi paradise!

Beautiful Experience

What a great morning out visiting a place that was even more beautiful then the Queenstown beach front. So peaceful and beautiful. Great fun on a paddle board and my friend went on a kayak. So great to have morning tea after time on the lake. I would highly recommend this tour

Fantastic experience

Fabulous tour! The drive itself is worth the visit alone, never mind the beauty of the Moke Lake itself! Me and my husband opted to test out our paddle board skills to explore the lake, great fun! The guides were professional, helpful and informative from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble. The little luxury picnic to welcome us as we returned off the water was also a nice added touch. Thanks guys!

Breath-taking!

Kayaking at Moke Lake was breath-taking! When we met the staff she said the weather was good for kayaking but we never imagined the lake could be so calm! It was mirror like reflections. The tea and biscuits at the end were a great touch!
