Scenic Flight

Why drive when you can fly to this geothermal paradise. Experience a water landing on the Waikato River before stepping off the plane to take a walk around the amazing silica terraces, steaming geysers, boiling mud pools and geothermal cave of Orakei Korako, situated amongst lush New Zealand bush. Rejoin the Floatplane afterwards for your return trip to Taupo via the Wairakei steam field and Huka Falls.

Flat calm lake and clear blue skies. The weather could not have been better for our flight over the volcanoes. From take off to landing the experience was fantastic. Spectacular views of the erupting Tongariro - only possible from the air as the walking track is closed - and so close to the summit of Ruapehu that you felt you could reach out and touch it ! If you do anything in Taupo do this. Brilliant !!
