Why Haka Lodge is awesome:

Everyone in our team has been a backpacker at some point, so we all understand what our guests need after a day of traveling and being out and about adventuring. We've all been there, we get it, and we want to provide you with the best there is so you can enjoy your New-Zealand experience fully.

Favourite local activity:

There is so much to do here in Taupō it's hard to pick just a select few! I guess the perfect day would start with a hike to the top of Mt Tauhara for the sunrise, where you have a 360 degree view of the Great Lake Taupō region, followed by a skydive or a rafting trip down the Tongariro river and then a cheeky little sailing trip on the lake to the Maori Rock Carvings, just in time for the sunset.

Top tip for making your stay a great one:

Just enjoy every little moment of your experience, meet your fellow travellers, and explore beautiful Taupo and its region. And if you have any questions, just come and see us and we'll be more than happy to help you out!
