The ever changing weather on the mountain will determine if the Sky Waka is operating.

After a hearty cooked breakfast at the Powderhorn Chateau we shall depart, to head to the other side of Mt Ruapehu, Whakapapa. Upon arrival we'll take the mountains road to the 'Bruce' car park and then, due to the ever changing weather on the mountain will determine if the Sky Waka will be running. If it is operating we will take this up to view over the Mountain Ranges then descend back down. After our exciting morning we will make our way through fabulous mountain scenery back to Taupo. Upon arrival we'll enjoy lunch together at the Millennium Hotel Restaurant located on the Lake Taupo water edge. From here we will make our way out to board the Huka River Cruise for a tour to the head of these mighty Huka falls. A real New Zealand experience with crystal clear water, birdlife and native bush lined riverbanks. See natural hot streams and the earth's energy that drives Wairakei Geothermal Power Station. Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee while cruising on water that is always calm. After this we will also enjoy a stop at Wairakei Terraces and Thermal Health Spa, where their pools draw their healing properties from silica terraces and geothermal water underground delivering an unbeatable combination of geothermal and mineral water. We'll enjoy a guided terrace walk which provides a window into the unique geothermal wonderland. From here we will continue our merry way homeward bound filled with fond memories of our experience.
