Things To Do
Guests have the most romantic and unique private dining venues to choose from, many featuring outdoor fireplaces and beautiful garden features.
The main dining room has private tables and a log fire. Guests may choose to dine in the vaulted underground Wine Cellar or beside the river in the Jetty Pavilion or upstairs in the Trophy Room. There are many additional choices and they are all deliberately romantic.
Each day the Executive Chef designs a superb five-course dinner menu for guests, choosing the most fresh and best quality New Zealand produce to do so. Huka Lodge has published its own cookbooks by popular demand.
Breakfasts at Huka Lodge are legendary and lunches are often picnics for guests enjoying adventures beyond the grounds.
Taupo is located in the central North Island and is blessed with superb recreational opportunities. Lake Taupo and its many rivers and streams attract very serious Rainbow and Brown trout fishing. Expectations of catching a trophy-size fish are not often disappointed. Aquatic adventures abound and include kayaking, river rafting, sailing, swimming, paragliding and more.
Horse riding, guided walks, mountain biking, golf at nearby Wairakei International Golf Course are all very popular activities. Within the Lodge grounds enjoy tennis, croquet, petanque, swimming and in-room facials and massages.
