Your family escape to Taupo

Day one

Drive to Taupo town on a Friday afternoon and check in for two nights’ accommodation at the amazing Lake Taupo Holiday Resort, staying in a self contained room. Your accommodation includes full access to the thermal pool complex featuring a swim up bar and outdoor movie screen. There is also the option to downgrade to a tent or caravan site if camping style accommodation appeals to your family.  

Take a trip to the lakefront for a fish and chip sunset dinner and a family photo with the #LOVETAUPO sign. The epic view out across Lake Taupo to the majestic mountains of the UNESCO dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park makes quite the backdrop! 

Day two

Enjoy a relaxing start to your Saturday morning exploring the many facilities at the resort, or explore nearby Spa Thermal Park - where you can find natural hot springs, a flying fox, playground, kids' pump tracks and beautiful walking trails alongside the picturesque Waikato River. It could be easy to lose track of time here, so make sure you get back to the resort in time for your transfer to Turangi for your rafting adventure with Tongariro River Rafting

Your rafting package includes a family float on the tranquil Tongariro River where you can expect to spot native whio (blue duck), anglers wading in fishing pools and lots of big grins! Enjoy a bite to eat before heading out for an easy mountain bike ride along the beautiful Tongariro River Trail, winding its way along the riverbank through native bush. Your rafting trip also includes a free digital media package so you can relive the magic all over again once you get home. 

Day three

Head into Taupo town on Sunday morning and enjoy breakfast at one of the many fantastic cafes or grab a takeaway coffee and see how many colourful Graffiato street art murals you can spot. Next stop is the popular Huka Prawn Park, where the prawns and activities are in abundance, including a river walk, obstacle course, trout feeding, hatchery tour, paddle boats, golf and more!
