Wairakei Terraces is located at Wairakei on the Thermal Explorer Highway, just 5 minutes north of Lake Taupo in the central North Island of New Zealand. We are adjacent to State Highway 1 and 5, bordering the Geothermal Steamfield and across the Road from Wairakei Resort Hotel.
When it comes to outdoor adventure, we hate to choose between things. Thankfully, packrafts keep us from having to! We think you just can't beat the mix of hiking, climbing, camping and paddling that these little boats make possible.
