What you can expect
The Squeeze or Orakei Korako offers the perfect New Zealand nature experience. Combine that with visits to Huka Falls and the Taupo Lookout for an unforgettable time in the great outdoors.
Begin the day with convenient pick-up from your hotel and a relaxing drive to Huka Falls. Join your guide in a tour of this immense waterfall and admire its crashing blue water draining into Lake Taupo. Make your way to the nearby Taupo Lookout, where you can gaze out at spectacular views of sprawling landscapes and the Wairakei Steam Field.
Soon you arrive at the Squeeze, as featured on The Bachelor. Pass through this narrow crevasse and see how it got its name—it may require some effort to “squeeze” through. But it's worth it—on the other side, you're greeted by a magical hot water spring and small waterfall. Immerse yourself in the water and soak up the atmosphere while relaxing in a naturally heated swimming pool.
Or Choose to walk around the Hidden geothermal valley of Orakei Korako. Orakei Korako feels like another world with its array of brightly coloured terraces, bubbling mud, steaming geysers, hidden caves and silica terraces. Be among the select few who have been able to get up close to a slice of New Zealand scenery.
After your swim or walk, get your heart pounding with a jet boat ride back to the starting point. Prepare to get wet and feel the water's refreshing splash as you tear across the surface of the Waikato River. Your experience ends with a ride back to your hotel.
