Tour Description

Enjoy some of the best fly fishing rivers in the world and also New Zealand’s most popular trout fishing location, on this luxury fly fishing retreat. 

In the heart of the North Islands Central Plateau, in Taupo, lies one of New Zealand most famous luxury lodges, Huka Lodge. As soon as you enter through the gates of Huka Lodge, you will immediately begin to leave the real world behind. As your enter the drive and encounter the park-like grounds, a feeling of peace and tranquility begins to gently settle. That very first glimpse of the deep turquoise green waters of the mighty Waikato River brings further affirmation of the potential that awaits. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is included throughout your stay and cooked by renowned executive chef Paul Froggatt.

On your first full day you will have a private fly-casting tuition, followed by a half-day fly fishing on a beautiful river or stream nearby. Both Rainbow and Brown trout frequent these waters! A picnic hamper for two will accompany you on your fishing adventure. There is plenty of time to wander to the Huka Falls, enjoy the river and surrounds.

This is the perfect friends or family getaway, add more nights, more fishing, or perhaps some golf? We can tailor make to suit your interests
