Day One – Travel to Taranaki Depart Auckland heading for Taranaki, or more fondly known as “Taradise” On the way we make a stop at New Zealand’s best hunting and fishing retail store and enjoy a real New Zealand BBQ Experience and scenic walk to stretch your legs to one of the North Islands highest waterfalls.
A home cooked meal is waiting for you at your lovely family orientated accommodation tonight to enjoy with wonderful hosts on a real working sheep & beef farm.
Day Two – Skeet & Target Shooting + Hunt Start your day with some skeet shooting and target practice before heading out into private land and native forest for an afternoon of goat hunting. Save your energy though because tonight you will be trying your luck at catching a long fin eel, one of the largest eels in the world and only found in New Zealand. Then a nocturnal shoot for brushtail possums.
Day Three – Full Day Hunting Spend the morning hunting rabbits, turkeys and other small game. Fuel up at lunch time with a home-cooked meal and head out again on the hunt for pigs deer and goats.
Evening options tonight include relaxing with a nice cold beverage or heading out for another nocturnal shoot.
Day Four – 4WD Tour and Rail Cart Adventure Rest your legs today and enjoy a 4WD Tour into the back country down a 17km paper road that was abandoned during the great depression in the 1930’s. This is a great day to get your camera out for some stunning photos of some rugged New Zealand hill country.
Follow the tour with lunch at New Zealand’s one and only republic, Whangamomona then enjoy a rail cart adventure and discover the Taranaki end of the abandoned Stratford Okahukura Railway Line. Learn about the line's rich history as the landscape slowly changes from gentle rolling plains to rugged hill-country. Next we head further south to accommodation with a million dollar view of Mt Egmont. Here you will enjoy another home-cooked meal and a beverage while you relax and take in the beauty.
Day Five – Jet Boat to a Historic place The early bird catches the worm today to get to the Bridge to Nowhere. A 30 minute jet boat ride will take you further inland to a walkway into the heart of the Whanganui National Park. The bridge was built to join up with the paper road on the 4WD Tour the previous day but was never completed due to the great depression.
Next a nice drive to Taupo and check into your lodging.
Day Six – Fishing Charter and Maori Hangi A leisurely morning of trout fishing this morning on the great Lake Taupo. Enjoy a lunch on the boat with serene views. And have a try of fresh Trout from your morning catch.
Next up a short scenic walk to view the astounding Huka Falls which cascades 200,000 litres of water per second!
Then on to Rotorua for a Maori Culture performance and traditional Maori Hangi (food cooked under the ground on hot stones) for dinner.
Day Seven – Mountainous Adventures and Rainbow Trout Get up early today for a guided tour of Mt Tarawera, a volcano that created the world’s youngest geothermal valley of Waimangu and at the same time destroyed the Pink and White terraces – which was the 8th natural wonder of the world. There is an option to run to the heart of the volcano down the scree on this tour.
Then we head over to Rainbow Springs to see the beautiful Rainbow Trout from another angle in the underwater viewing area. Here you will also see an abundance of wildlife and the option for a Kiwi Encounter.
