  • dollar sign icon
    From $55

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.
