You will meet us at our base in Acacia Bay or from Taupo CBD, where we will set off by road to the farmland of Mount Tauhara to walk the track.
Mount Tauhara is a dormant lava dome volcano 6km east from the Taupo town centre. Our Mount Tauhara tour is without a doubt an amazing way to see the expansive 360 degrees views of Lake Taupo.
The 2.8km track to the top of Mount Tauhara is very popular with locals and visitors alike, taking about 1.5 hours to reach the top, depending on fitness levels. The track can be uneven and steep at places but the challenging climb is worth the paroramic views of Lake Taupo, Mt Tongariro and Mt Ruapehu in the distance.
