TAUPO, NEW ZEALAND
“Hard to find the words to describe this experience and place! What an absolutely amazing area, fabulous experience and the nicest, most charming people I’ve ever met. The rooms are wonderfully elegant and the surrounding trees and river make for such crazy-great views- especially from above in the helicopter, an experience offered at the Lodge that you must not pass up.”

Located right on the Waikato River, this is a wonderful place for fisherman and outdoorsmen alike. Best to combine with other NZ areas and Australia and / or Fiji if you have the time – and budget.
A neat spot for families to spend time together outdoors; or a fun fishing trip with the guys.
Exploring the rural areas on horseback.

This location is at the least one hour from the closest airport and three/four from the largest international airport in Auckland.
