Your family adventure in Taupo

Day one

Drive to Taupo and check in for two nights’ accommodation at the beautiful Voyager Apartments, staying in a fully equipped two bedroom apartment. Your accommodation includes access to the heated pool, a private BBQ and full apartment facilities. 

This afternoon enjoy a walk from Spa Park to Huka Falls. On the way be sure to stop for a hot swim in the natural thermal waters of Otumuheke Stream, before marvelling at the thunder of the mighty Huka Falls. 

This evening take a family photo with the #LOVETAUPO sign, before heading to dinner at the family friendly Dixie Browns. Your package includes a free drink voucher with each main meal, so settle in and enjoy the delicious food. 

Day two

Start your day of adventure with a Fat Tyre Forest Trail e-scooter adventure through the forest at the Craters of the Moon. Pure Kiwi Adventures will teach you how to ride your fat tyre scooter like a pro, and then lead you through beautiful trails of untouched bush.

After your tour visit Lava Glass for a delicious lunch and explore the incredible sculpture garden, an award winning collection of locally made glass art. The kids will be mesmerised by the art of glass-blowing, and there are plenty of beautiful pieces for sale in the gift shop if you would like to take home a little bit of Taupo. 

This afternoon you will lift off with Heli Adventure Flights. Fly above the Huka Falls, Craters of the Moon and Aratiatia Dam in this once in a lifetime experience. Choose between two flights of two people or one flight of three people, and decide who wants to fly high above Taupo together!

This evening check out the heated pool and cook dinner on your private BBQ, or take the short stroll into town and try out another of Taupo's delicious family friendly restaurants. 

Day three

Head into Taupo town this 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 Four B Bike Hire, where you will be fitted out on e-bikes for a three hour exploration of the Waikato River.

Ride the Aratiatia Rotary Ride as a family, and make sure you time it to watch the Aratiatia Dam Release at 10am, 12pm or 2pm. This incredible sight was included in several films including The Hobbit, and recreates some of New Zealand's only Grade 6 natural rapids.

Return your bikes to Four B and grab a coffee for the road at Kefi at The Hub, before heading home, dreaming of your next adventure getaway.
