Thermal Safari Thrill Ride

TAUPO'S THERMAL WONDERLAND



Experience the world's only river jet tour that allows you to step off of your jet boat and onto a fantastic geothermal wonderland. This adrenaline-pumping experience offers the thrill of blasting down Waikato River at 90km/h to spending an hour exploring Taupo's hidden valley Orakei Korako.

One moment you will race down the Waikato River barely avoiding obstacles, pulling donuts and shooting towards the riverbanks. The next moment you will cruise through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge watching abundant bird life, pine forests, steaming volcanic river banks and trout feeding areas on your way down to Orakei Korako; one of New Zealand’s most popular geothermal attractions.

The stunning scenery of the mighty Waikato River makes you feel like time stood still as you gently cruise through the spectacular Tutukau Gorge where the canyon walls rise dramatically up to 50 metres above the water.

MUST SEE IN ORAKEI KORAKO


Orakei Korako feels like another world with its array of brightly coloured terraces, bubbling mud, steaming geysers, hidden caves and silica terraces. Be among the select few who have been able to get up close to a slice of New Zealand scenery.

Don't miss the jade-green Emerald Terrace, the largest terrace in New Zealand. Witness any one of the 35 active geysers in Orakei Korako explode. Be enchanted by the gentle steam flowing from Rainbow Terrace. Or enjoy a steamy latte from The Mudcake Cafe while enjoying beautiful views of Lake Ohakuri.

WHAT TO WEAR AND BRING:

You will only need to bring your camera - we will cover the rest. For your comfort, you may want to bring comfortable walking shoes or an additional jacket. As you will not get wet on this tour, there is no need to bring your swimsuit - or as we kiwi's like to call it, togs!

We provide spray jackets and gloves if the weather requires so.
