Hotel Overview

Your helicopter awaits on the front lawn of Huka Lodge. From here you will fly along the eastern edge of Lake Taupo towards the majestic Kaimanawa mountain ranges. As you approach, sit back in awe as the alpine scenery unfolds before you. Once your pilot has set the aircraft down beside the crystal waters of the Rangatiki River, you may take a short walk to one of the many secluded pools which are home to some of New Zealand's largest Rainbow trout. This is nature at its best.

Re-board your helicopter for the remainder of the flight, which continues west along the Kaimanawas towards Mt Tongariro, Mt Ngauruhoe and the snow-capped peaks and crater lake of Mt Ruapehu. On a clear day visibility exceeds 50km. Descend from the mountains, head towards the Western Bays of Lake Taupo where your pilot will set the aircraft down on a remote rock shelf where a well-appointed motor launch, a sumptuous lunch and a chilled bottle of New Zealand wine awaits you. En route back to Taupo you will have the opportunity to troll for trout or you may wish to try your hand at clay pigeon shooting or swim in the crystal-clear waters of Lake Taupo.

On arrival at the Taupo Boat Harbour, a courtesy vehicle awaits to transfer you back to Huka Lodge.Huka Lodge is surrounded by magnificent natural beauty. Guest are invited to explore the park-like gardens and flower borders or simply soak in the hot pools.

The arrival point at Huka Lodge is where guests gather to breakfast before setting off for their day's activities, to have a drink before dinner and to sit beside the log fire reading a magazine while gazing toward the river from time to time.

Explore the park-like gardens and flower borders or soak in our hot pools. Enjoy a game of tennis on our all weather court. Relax playing a game of petanque. A short walk beyond the gates brings you to the spectacular Huka Falls.
