Following an increasing number of potential safety incidents on KiwiRail’s Great Journeys of New Zealand scenic rail services, the outdoor viewing carriage on the Northern Explorer only will be closed until further notice while a safety solution is found.
Enjoy thrills, fun and excitement as the Hukafalls Jet takes you on the ride of your life along a stunning river environment, lined with native bush and natural hot springs.
The exhilarating power of the jet boat will get your heart pumping as you zoom past trees and sheer rock cliffs with just centimetres to spare. This is a must-do Taupo experience!
You'll be safe in the hands of expert drivers as the boat travels at an incredible 80 kilometres per hour and executes 360° spins, making this trip an experience you'll never forget. Pass by the Huka Prawn Park, Wairakei Geothermal Power Station and the Aratiatia Dam, and see clouds of steam as the river is joined by thermal streams.
Hukafalls Jet is the only jet boat company permitted to take you right up to the base of the legendary Huka Falls. Enjoy the unique vantage point from water level and marvel at the awe-inspiring majesty of one of New Zealand's most visited natural attractions, before getting up close to the mighty white water.
Your Hukafalls Jet experience includes complimentary return transfers from our Taupo coach stop.
