Tiua – meaning ‘to move with the wind’ in the indigenous Maori language – is an enchanting vessel that explores the bays and natural hot springs of Lake Rotoiti that are only accessible by boat. In the hands of your experienced crew, learn about the history of the area and how Lake Rotoiti came to obtain its name. You’ll have the chance to sail the vessel and trim the sails, weather permitting, you might like to take a swim in the lake or wait until you reach the southern end of the lake and step ashore to bath in the natural hot springs at Manupirua.
