Discover a spectacular maze of limestone caverns with a leisurely walking cruise or a boat cruise at Waitomo Caves. You’ll be mesmerised by the twinkling titiwai (glowworms). In typical New Zealand style, a more adventurous way to see this subterranean wonderland would be from a rubber tube – black water rafting(opens in new window).
New Zealand’s most visited natural attraction, Huka Falls, is a site to behold, gushing out 220,000 litres of water per second. Enjoy easy walks to one of the vantage points alongside the river or in true Taupo style, take an adventurous jet boat ride, getting close enough to taste the spray.
Enjoy Auckland’s vibrant food & wine scene
There’s something for everyone’s palate in Auckland. Head to one of the boutique wineries on Waiheke Island or in Matakana, where every glass is matched with beautiful scenery. Foodies will love artisan finds in the city and country farmers markets that thrive in the region, or head to one of Auckland’s buzzing dining precincts that represent the melting pot that New Zealand culture is. Hop on a food tour and get to know Auckland’s gastronomy.
Travel in comfort in a motorised railcart along a decommissioned railway line, through tunnels, over bridges and rivers and to townships that time forgot. Located in the heart of rural New Zealand, Forgotten World Adventures(opens in new window) is an experience unlike another.
Hailed as one of New Zealand’s most extraordinary artworks, the Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings were carved over four years above the deep water of Lake Taupo by Matahi Brightwell and his team of artists. Take a scenic cruise or kayak to get up close to this work of art.
