Great Lake Taupo Reward and Incentive Ideas
Now, for something really special to consider when booking your North Island New Zealand conference...
Helicopter Silver Service Dinner
Get a helicopter to drop you off in the remote Western Bays of Lake Taupō for a silver service dinner. Dine in a beautiful private setting on the edge of the lake. Continue the party on a charter boat home.
Find your hidden 'Race Car Driver'
Head out to the Taupo Motorsport Park and learn to drive a single seater Formula One race car replica - the closest you will ever get to Formula 1. Or if you're more a Ford or Holden fan, get behind the wheel of a V8 racecar, or let the experienced drivers thrill you around the track! If Sports Cars are more your thing, then take the wheel of one of the world's most popular sports cars, the MX5. Learn the challenges of an all out day of excitement 'at the track'. Finish the day off with a cold drink and BBQ dinner in 'Pit Lane'.
Jet Boat Thrills
Take a jet boat ride on the mighty Waikato River. Slide past sheer cliffs with just centimetres to spare and then race to the base of the thundering Huka Falls, over the famous Fuljames Rapids or through the majestic Tutukau Gorge. Experience the “jet turn” where your driver spins your boat through 360 degrees at high speed! Stop on the riverbank or mid river for a surprise refreshment break.
Catch a Trout!
Choose a guide and spend a day fly fishing on the world renowned rivers of the Great Lake Taupo region. Take a 4x4 vehicle or helicopter transfer to a secluded wilderness river or simply walk out your door and fish the famous Tongariro River! Trout fishing license required.
A package of three activities all organised for you. Start with a cruise on Lake Taupō on one of Chris Jolly's perfectly equiped launches. Then be collected by Inflite Charters and helicopter out over the Maori Rock Carvings and Huka Falls. Land at Hukafalls Jet's base for a 30 minute blast up the Waikato River. What a WOW afternoon!
