As you drive into New Plymouth, the first thing you'll notice is the magnificent peak of Mount Taranaki, our 2518-metre-tall volcano.
Various viewing points from within the Park.
This stunning sleeping giant is a haven for trampers and hikers, rock-climbers, skiers and snowboarders. Walks of varying lengths (from 15 minutes to the 5-day ‘round the mountain’ circuit) will see you discover clear mountain pools, lush mystical forests and awe-inspiring views. You can even hike to the summit crater with a professional guide.
A 30 minute drive from our Taranaki holiday park will take you to the base of this dramatically beautiful and sacred mountain. There, you can visit the Egmont Visitor Centre to learn more about the mountain, its history, its myths and legends and its natural assets.
Hikes on the upper or lower parts of Mountain Taranaki, venture out for just the drive or get out and walk till the sun sets over the Mountian
For an exhilarating experience, take a Scenic flight over and around the mountain
