The next two days are all about the fishing. If you want to book a guided fishing experience, Taupo has plenty of expert guides from which to choose. A helicopter tour is an excellent way to reach remote backcountry rivers.
Many anglers choose to base themselves in nearby Turangi, beside the world famous Tongariro River. This area has famous fishing spots in almost every direction, including ‘The Delta’, ‘The Hole’, ‘Little Big O’ and ‘Tailrace’ (believed to contain the world’s fattest trout).
For non-fishers, there are numerous activities on offer such as rafting the Tongariro River, cycling the River Trail or relaxing with high tea at the Chateau Tongariro Hotel.
