Scenic flights in Taupo

Taupo takes on a new perspective from above. From the birds-eye view of a plane or helicopter, you can see the whole heart-shaped lake in deep blue or green.

The countryside is laid out in a patchwork of rolling pastureland, ancient forests and native bush, wound through with rivers and streams.

Take off in a helicopter, charter plane or even a seaplane on the lake, and do a grand circuit over Huka Falls, the immense crater-topped volcanoes in the dual World Heritage-listed Tongariro National Park or the rainbow geothermal landscape of the hidden valley of Orakei Korako.

For an unforgettable view, take off from the lake on a parasail during the spring and summer and fly through the sky at 500-1000ft, getting a 360˚ coast-to-coast view.
