Waikaremoana - Care for Nature - PRINT-01

LAKE WAIKAREMOANA GREAT WALK WATER TAXI

Tūhoe offers a Water Taxi service to and from each end of the Great Walk, and to individual huts and campsites around the lake, out of Te Kura Whenua (Te Urewera Visitor Centre, Lake Waikaremoana).

For full information on routes and prices CLICK HERE

We want to do our best to provide a great experience for manuhiri (our guests) in Te Urewera. Since 2018 when a previous water taxi service exited abruptly leaving visitors stranded, Tūhoe has provided a taxi as a service to manuhiri to allow full enjoyment of the Great Walk.

We use the same service boats that are also used for operational and conservation work around the lake, skippered by our Tūhoe kaimahi (workers) who are intimately involved in the day to day care of Te Urewera. The fees cover the service's costs and with any surplus going towards our conservation efforts. Because these are working boats, the number of trips we can make per day is strictly limited and we encourage you to book early to enjoy a hassle free visit to Waikaremoana!
