Begin your journey with a scenic jet boat ride with New Zealand River Jet, taking in the remarkable landscapes on the outskirts of Taupō and learning about the history and legends of the area.
Through the gorge, you’ll disembark the boat into knee-deep warm water and head towards a narrow gap in the cliff face to start the challenge of The Squeeze.
After manoeuvring your way through narrow crevasses, climbing boulders and wading through warm, waist-deep water, you’ll emerge into stunning native New Zealand bush.
Immerse yourself in the environment and soak up the atmosphere while relaxing in the thermal waters of a naturally heated hot spring.
