Situated at the edge of Fiordland National Park, the lakeside town of Manapouri provides a base for journeys into glacier-carved wilderness.

Lake Manapouri is the second deepest lake in New Zealand. It has a large hydro power station at the end of its west arm. The creation of the power station in 1959 improved access to Doubtful Sound (a fiord). Tours of the power station are available or you can explore by sea kayak or cruise boat.

At Manapouri you’re surrounded by the majesty of Fiordland on all sides. Experience the lake environment or organise an expedition to Doubtful Sound.
