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. 

Although this is an intermediate track, children who are used to hiking might enjoy it. Please wear sturdy footwear and take a layer of warm clothing as there is often a cool wind at the summit.

Mount Tauhara is a culturally significant landmark for local Maori and located on privately owned land. Walkers are asked to respect the access granted by the owners by keeping to the track.
