A full day tour with a six-to-seven-hour duration, the Ultimate Huka Experience may fly south from Huka Lodge to the Kaimanawa Range wilderness, with possible sightings of wild horses and Red or Sika deer.
The heli lands next to the surging Rangitikei River for a chance to view trophy-sized Rainbow trout. Return to Lake Taupō along mountain ranges seething with volcanic activity and over the vast craters of the Tongariro National Park.
Alternatively, a northerly flight takes in the thundering Huka Falls and follows the Waikato River to the Wai-O-Tapu and Waimangu geothermal regions. Take a daring flight over the dormant volcanic cone of Mt. Tarawera, which last erupted in 1886.
Return to Lake Taupō via some of the spectacularly lush farm and forest lands of central North Island.
After an eighty-minute heli flight, meet a luxury cruise in a remote bay on Lake Taupō. Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch and cruise back to the Taupō Marina, with the chance to try trout fishing along the way.
