Choose from the 15-minute Huka Falls/Rock Carvings flight, the 30-minute Best of Taupo flight and the 45-minute Tongariro Volcanic Direct flight.
Huka Falls/Rock Carvings
During the 15-minute helicopter flight, take in breathtaking views of Taupo and its two most inspirational scenic icons, the Huka Falls and Maori Rock Carvings. An aerial view is the only way to truly appreciate the majesty of these features -- the tumbling Huka Falls, carved over the millennia by nature, and the rock carvings carved as a cultural expression by the Maori.
The Best of Taupo
The 30-minute Best of Taupo flight combines scenic views of mountains, the Huka Falls and famous Maori Rock Carvings. The route takes you over spectacular Mt Tauhara, for panoramic views from this imposing vantage point. Enjoy vistas south over New Zealand’s largest lake, Lake Taupo, and see the majestic volcanoes of World Heritage Tongariro National Park and the remote alpine Kaimanawa Ranges. To the north, the views extend as far as Mt Tarawera. The flight also takes you to the powerful Huka Falls and Wairakei Geothermal fields, over the Maori Rock Carvings for great photo opportunities, and above the crystal-clear waters of Lake Taupo.
Tongariro Volcanic Direct
The fabulous 45-minute helicopter flight travels to the summit craters of volcanic Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro. Enjoy spectacular alpine views of the Tongariro Crossing, the stunning Emerald Lakes and the thermal activity of Ketetahi Hot Springs. The flight also takes in the magnificent scenery of Lake Taupo and its crystal-clear waters, the steep White Cliffs bordering the lake’s edge, the raging white-water waves of the Tongariro River and the rugged snowcapped peaks of the Central North Island volcanoes.
