Depart Auckland at 7.30am and for 40 minutes fly as high as a bird over one of the most picturesque views in New Zealand, enroute to Taupo. If the weather permits, extend this flight over Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest lake, to the Tongariro National Park and view the Ngaruhoe and Ruapehu mountains, periodically an active volcano. Then be delivered to the breathtaking western bays of Lake Taupo and board MV Waianawa, a well appointed 50ft launch for morning tea refreshments. Spend the next 2-3 hours aboard testing your hand at trout fishing, exploring the lake and its’ edges and soaking in the views.
Thereafter, the helicopter will collect and deliver you to one of New Zealand’s most prestigious hunting lodges: Huka Lodge. Explore the expansive grounds, right on the edge of the Waikato River, New Zealand’s longest river and then retire for lunch, where your tastebuds will be treated to the most sumptuous blend of New Zealand delicacies. Once you have truly unwound, reboard your helicopter for a 40 minute return flight to Auckland. Suitable pre and post ship cruise.
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
