This is a full-day scenic tour into the Egmont National Park and around the Taranaki volcanoes.
Including a variety of outdoor activities, the tour begins at the bird sanctuary at Lake Mangamahoe, featuring many of the country’s exclusive species of bird.
Passing the mountain villages of Inglewood and Stratford, you will stop for lunch in a haunted alpine lodge, where many of you will be grateful that you’re not spending the night! From there, you will journey around three different volcanoes and pass the idyllic coastal villages of Okato and Oakura.
Stopping for a beach walk, you can soak up the gentle sounds and calming breeze that flutters over the area, before passing by the Sugar Loaf Islands on your return journey to New Plymouth. Led by a knowledgeable Maori guide, you will follow trails that are not widely known into a part of New Zealand’s wilderness rarely experienced.
Maori myths, legends and history will be the topics of the day and we encourage you to learn all you can about this unique Polynesian culture. Pick up and drop off at your hotel as well as lunch are included. This tour departs at 08:00am in the summer and 09:00am in the winter.
Duration: 6-7 hours
