An unexpected splurge on a 9 minute helicopter ride for three was an absolute highlight for our family. Picture perfect day to fly over Huka Falls and out to Lake Taupo. Staff were great, and the pilot was very friendly and informative. Would love to do one of the longer flights to the mountains, but will need to save up... More

So, to start with this is the most Tourist-Riffic thing we have ever done but we really wanted to see the lake and volcanoes from the air. Right? Right. We went to the World Headquarters of Heli Adventures and was greeted by Chris at the counter. It was a rainy Sunday so we looked at the weather and decided on... More

Although a little expensive (as is expected for a helicopter ride), it was well worth the cost just looking at the beautiful Taupo, and especially the Huka falls, from up above. Friendly pilot who explained everything we saw. We had never been on a helicopter before, and it was exciting for us as a family to take our first ever... More

My friend and I did the Taste of Taupo trip and enjoyed it very much. We took in the Huka Halls, Town, Lake and Craters of the Moon. It was a lovely overview of Taupo, and being in a helicopter is amazing.
