Taupo Scenic Tour

Departing Taupo @ 9.30am (very civilised!)

For those people that have either done the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, had a day on the slopes or want to undertake something less strenuous and see some of Taupo’s local attractions.

Ideal for those without a vehicle, wives/husbands looking for something to do while their other half is otherwise occupied or just want to get out and enjoy some of Taupo’s stunning scenery.

This is also a great alternative option for those closed mountain days (summer and winter).

If you’re after something more adventurous why not try the New Zealand River Jet Thermal Safari tour to Orakei Korako. Embark on a scenic trip down the mighty Waikato River and through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge which will take you right to Orakei Korako, a thrilling alternative for those who are wanting a more fast paced option. With stunning scenery and wildlife to be seen and heard, stories of the local Maori tribes and with highly skilled drivers and guides you are sure to have a thrilling time.
