What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Nothing can quite prepare you for the variety of amazing landscapes you find in such a compact area here, making North Island a ‘must see’ on every world traveller’s itinerary for years. Now, though, you can do it in supreme luxury, and without taking a month off. Flying around by helicopter lets you sample all the best bits in just a week or two, and there is no better base than Huka Lodge.
