Huka Honey Hive
Located just 5 minutes north of Taupo on SH1 is a honey of a place that will be seen “Sweet As” by the entire family. Kids of all ages will enjoy watching the bees hard at work in their glass viewing hives and in the learning centre you’ll learn how and why the queen rules. Sample a myriad of yummy New Zealand made honey products including raw honey, jams, syrup, mead and loads of skin care and wellness products. Try the home made honey ice cream and fudge at their café. The Honey Hive also carries a wide range of New Zealand art and handcraft products at reasonable prices. This is a one of a kind “buzzing” experience not to be missed when visiting Taupo. The Huka Honey Hive is located at 65 Karetoto Road off Huka Falls Road in Wairakei Park.
After a long day of shopping you’ll want to soothe your tired muscles by having a long soak at Taupo Hot Springs. While the adults soak in one of the many therapeutic hot mineral pools the kids can let off some steam playing in the warm water playground surrounded by gushing water, magic mushrooms and streaming jets. For something extra special take in a relaxing massage or indulgent mud wrap at the Living Waters Day Spa. All spa treatments also come with a complimentary soak in the pools.
