Our accommodation for the night is the Grand Tongariro Chateau located at the base of Mt Ruapehu, a lovely nostalgic destination offering great views of Tongariro and Ruapehu. We will enjoy a three-course meal in the warm atmospheric restaurant and relax in the Chateau lounge with the crackling fire and piano playing in the background.

In the theatre we will present the new tour programme show casing all the great trips ahead of us and celebrating all that makes our country such a wonderful place to live. We then board the coach, say our goodbyes to make our way through wonderful mountain scenery back to Taupo. Once we arrive, we will board the Huka Boat River Cruise for an hour and a half tour to the head of these powerful falls. An exciting experience. Enjoy crystal clear water, birdlife and native bush lined riverbanks. See natural hot streams and the earth's energy that drives Wairakei Geothermal Power Station. Lunch will be at Lava glass cafe and Sculpture garden where there is always something new to look at and admire. After this interesting interlude, we shall then make our way back home to Tauranga.
