Epic adventure for 18 to 35 year olds

Sail Lake Taupo


From $49

Sail the Southern Hemisphere’s largest freshwater lake in style, aboard a classic sailing yacht with Sail Barbary. Learn about Maori stories and history that shaped New Zealand while you cruise through Lake Taupo’s calm waters. This trip really is a must do in Taupo, with its fantastic staff, eco-friendly boats and remarkable sights.

You’ll get to cruise along the lake to the incredible 14 metre high Maori Rock Carvings in Mine Bay, where in summer, you can have a dip in the gorgeous clear waters of the bay. In typical laid back kiwi style, you’ll get to relax and sit back while your skipper tells you all about the history of Taupo and the Maori Rock Carvings.

Where do I start! Absolutely fantastic tour! The places are all breathtaking, postcard quality views around every corner. I am in love with New Zealand now and can’t wait to be back.

Had the most amazing tour in the south island. I was nervous about travelling solo the first time but such a small group of awesome people made it a great experience and I never felt like I was alone!

The itinerary was great, we got to see so much and even the driving days were fun because we got to stop off at so many beautiful and out of the way places.
