New Zealand’s Lake Taupo region is a fly fishermen’s paradise. With some of the best fishing and spectacular scenery New Zealand has to offer. This ‘lifetime highlight’ fly fishing experience with Helicopter Me combines the thrill of fly fishing with the joy of helicoptering into unfathomable locations.
The day starts with a helicopter flight from Auckland to Taupo, passing over the farmland of Waikato, thermal springs of Wairakei and the magnificent Huka Falls onlong the way. A quick stop at Taupo to stretch the legs before departing into the remote fishing locations east of Taupo.
Your professional local guide from flyfishtaupo.com will come along to show you the best spots to fish, provide expert advice and sort you out with all the equipment necessary to catch a Rainbow or Brown Trout. Only by helicopter can you access the pristine waters of these great waterways.
At the end of a full day enjoy a relaxing helicopter flight back to Auckland, taking in more stunning sites along the way. Or why not stay the night at luxury Huka Lodge or try an outdoor camping adventure?
