Taupo Floatplane - Peek of the Lake

Take to the skies and experience an exhilarating scenic flight over great Lake Taupo!

Highlights

  • Fly past Acacia Bay to Rangatira Point over Whakaipo and Mine Bay
  • See the beautiful Mapara Valley and its red scoria quarries
  • Pass over the mighty Waikato River and Huka Falls
  • Fly over the bubbling mud and steaming vents of the “Craters of the Moon” thermal area
  • Follow the maze of pipework at the Wairakei Power station

Departing from the water at Taupo Bay, this unique flight in a Cessna floatplane gives you a bird’s eye view of one of New Zealand’s most scenic regions.

Discover first hand the immensity of New Zealand's largest lake as we fly along the Northern Bays toward Kinloch, allowing you to soak up the gorgeous crystal clear water from above.

On heading back we pass over the Wairakei steam field, take a circuit of the incredible Huka Falls and fly over Taupo’s town centre before landing on Taupo’s lakefront.

A truly magical flying experience that’s not to be missed!

Brilliant

Our short flight was awesome. Excellent and relaxed ride with perfect views for photos. We had some very happy children who can't wait to do it again. Highly recommend.

Beautiful aerial view

Absolutely loved flying high above Taupo. Neil was a fantastic guide. Would love to hear the Maori history of the land. I feel flying high would be a great opportunity to visualise it.

Took a flight with my grandson, wonderful experience for the both of us. Recommended if you visit Taupo, friendly and informative pilot as you fly over the many surrounding sights with beautiful scenery.
