You can fish for trout all year round in Taupo and January and February are particularly good months for fly fishing. We recommend Chris Jolly Outdoors for all your Taupo hunting, fishing and adventure needs.

Fiordland, National Park
Awarded World Heritage status for its breathtaking natural beauty, exceptional glamour and significant role in showing off the earth’s evolutionary history, Fiordland is an absolute dream. Either try your hand at golf in Te Anau which is surrounded by the Fiordland National Park, or hop aboard a cruise that will leave you speechless with panoramic views of untouched nature and snow-capped mountains.
Queenstown, South Island
From wine tours and tastings to bungee jumping and sky diving, it is clear to see why Queenstown is held in such high regard by tourists internationally. It plays host to the biggest blockbuster movies (Lord of the Rings), award-winning wines, dramatic views and some of the most luxurious accommodation options available. Only a two hour flight from Auckland Airport, it is the perfect place to escape.
Hawkes Bay, North Island
Based on the east coast of the North Island, this is one of the country’s premier wine growing regions. Enjoy a leisurely pace, or jump on a bike for a more active break, and soak up the sun as you visit your chosen wineries in the rolling countryside.
