My partner decided to surprise me with a trip on the floatplane (we did the 30min flight) and it was incredible. We were lucky to have the plane to ourselves on a clear day and couldn't believe the views. A must do in taupo - it really gives you an idea of the size of the lake!

Fantastic couple of hours. A birds eye view of beautiful Taupo with running commentary followed by a river landing at Orake Korako for a walk around an ancient thermal wonderland. 2 hours of excellence!

What a great experience! We did the flight to Orakei Korako with the river landing and hike. I loved it! Cameron was charming as well as knowledgable.

Our original planned flight over Mt Ruapehu etc had to be x'celled as the mountains were covered in cloud, so we took the 1/2hr trip around the lake & geothermal area & was certainly not disappointed. It was both my husbands & granddaughters first time in a float plane. Our pilot was very good & gave a knowledgeable commentary of the area.
Will do again - highly recommend.

My wife and I visited Taupo for the first time and didn't arrive until 5pm
We had a walk round the harbour and saw the floatplane kiosk and asked the guys for details and whether they could do something immediately
They were excellent and when we decided to do the half hour west of the lake trip they also landed at a secluded beach sot hat we could take a short hike to a waterfall nearby
It was an amazing experience and our pilot was great - he gave us a running commentary and was very professional
Would highly recommend this to anyone as a 'must do' in Taupo
