Turangi is located at the hub of the North Island’s trout fishing scene, and whilst it’s not compulsory, you’d be mad not to try your hand at angling for the rainbow and brown trout that thrive here. Skilled guides can introduce novices to the intricacies of the fine art of fly fishing; and dedicated anglers can stalk trophy browns and rainbows with dry flies during the summer months, and pursue spawning runs of rainbow trout upstream with nymphs.

Helicopter- and raft-fishing in remote high-country streams provide further opportunities to fish for trophy trout. The Tongariro river’s crystal-clear waters are also shared by whitewater rafters and kayakers. One way to get amongst the whitewash of its grade-three rapids and see breathtaking gorges is with Tongariro River Rafting, which also caters for family groups with a Gentle Family Float, a leisurely afternoon cruise down the soft-tumbling waters of the lower Tongariro. Whitewater kayaking and scenic floats are available as well.

Turangi has a host of other attractions such as the challenging 14-metre indoor climbing wall at Vertical Assault, scenic flights, mountain biking, adventure mini golf, beer tasting at Club Habitat’s micro-brewery, and lots of hiking. And – as if that if not enough – just 10 minutes away is the Tokaanu Thermal Pools, featuring a large public pool and several family-sized private pools, as well as a walkway that takes you through an active thermal area in native bush, amongst the flurries of rising steam and plopping mud.
