This Tongariro Lodge fishing escape is for two people:
Package available for travel until 25 September 2020.
Take a scenic drive to Taupo today and check in to your accommodation at the iconic Tongariro Lodge. Situated on the banks of the legendary Tongariro River, this is the ideal property to reconnect with your trout fishing passion.
This afternoon take time to explore your surroundings. Take a wander along the Tongariro River Trails keeping an eye out for the famous rainbow or brown trout in the crystal clear pools. Then grab your swimsuit and take the short ten minute drive to the Tokaanu Thermal Springs for a late afternoon soak in the thermal mineral pools.
A range of dining options are available for your dinner this evening. Either head out to the Turangi town centre or stay in at the lodge and eat at the delicious inhouse restaurant.
A full day of fishing magic today. Your private fishing guide will lead you to his favourite secret spots and coach you to land one of the famous Tongariro River trout. Trophy trout of over 10 lbs are landed regularly and with an average size of 4 lbs you are sure to create memories to last a life time today.
This evening enjoy a sumptuous dinner at Tongariro Lodge. If you have brought your catch back with you hand it the chef, who would be delighted to prepare your catch to your liking and recommend the perfect wee drop to accompany your hard work. Conclude the evening relaxing in front of the crackling fire and reminiscing about your days' adventures with the other guests.
Sleep in this morning before packing your bags and checking out of your accommodation.
Spend the morning perfecting the techniques you learned from your guide yesterday, or head slightly out of town to visit the Tongariro National Trout Centre. Here you can learn all about this world class fishery and the fresh water world of trout. Meander through the fresh water aquarium to gain an insight into the history of trout fishing in New Zealand and the other fresh water species often seen in our rivers and lakes. Then wander the riverside trails to view the Whio Creche, where the very endangered blue duck chicks are reared until they are able to survive out in the wild.
As your fishing escape concludes, be sure to stop off at one of the many cafes in Turangi town centre for a coffee and some lunch. Then head home, dreaming of your next escape to this fisherman's paradise.
