Lake Taupō Voyager Experience
Our voyager experience starts from Auckland city and you’ll enjoy a three hour scenic drive South of Auckland into Waikato, with a scenic stop or two for taking picturesque photos of New Zealand's lush countryside.
At Huka Falls you can witness the phenomenon of natural hydro power with more than 220,000 litres of water per sec barreling over 11meter high waterfall. The previously placid waters roar and rumble at great speed along the ravine before bursting out over Huka Falls to crash into the turbulent pool 11 metres below. A foot bridge right at the top of the falls puts you in a prime position to get up close and witness the powerful display of water blasting by -. If you'd like to see the power and fury of the falls up close, try a jet boat ride or river cruise.
The beautiful Lake Taupō is about the size of Singapore – more of an inland sea really. Taupō was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption so big it darkened the skies in Europe and China.
Taupō is a great lake for water-skiing, sailing and kayaking. The Maori rock carvings at Mine Bay, which can only be seen from the water, make for a great boat trip or kayaking excursion. The forests surrounding the lake offer hiking and mountain biking to suit all levels of experience.
Relax on the waterfront & enjoy a picnic lunch or choose from a wide selection of cafes and restaurants.
Take a relaxing boat trip on one of the world’s largest freshwater volcanic craters, Lake Taupō is home to the famous Māori Rock Carvings, only accessible by boat. With comfortable seating inside and out, be sure to have your camera ready, and enjoy this piece of spiritual and cultural significance of the lake.
After you finish your amazing voyager experience, we make our way through the scenic roads of Waikato back to Auckland city.
