Around Mt. Taranaki

The internationally recognised ‘Around Mt. Taranaki Tour’ is available all year round. This personalised tour, often tailor-made, is designed to provide visitors with the opportunity to learn, see and experience as much of Taranaki as is possible in one day with a focus on contemporary Maori culture and a stunning landscape. This is a full day scenic tour into the Egmont National Park and right around the Taranaki volcanoes. Your knowledgeable Maori guide will share Maori myths, legends and tales. Enjoy the bird reserve at Lake Mangamahoe, Egmont National Park rainforest, views from 900 m above sea-level, pass through the country villages of Inglewood and Stratford, a sumptuous cooked lunch is provided, then pass by the coastal villages of Okato and Oakura back to the Sugar Loaf Islands in New Plymouth. Duration: 6-7 hours. Bring reasonable walking shoes, a warm jacket and a bottle of water. 16 years and under only pays half of the group adult fare. Bookings essential.


The signature Around the Mountain (Mt Taranaki) tour is memorable with in depth local knowledge rounding out the experience.
