While you are in New Zealand, we invite you to join us on a local hunting experience. We’d love to take you out hunting and share the local bush with you. It’s a great place to hunt with a good variety of country and plenty of game. This is a wonderful opportunity to unwind, enjoy being in the bush and have a successful hunt.
Your hunt will be entirely on private land. Mark will enjoy sharing his hunting domain with you; his family has hunted this area for 4 generations. Your hunt will take you through stunning native bush and over farmland. Using 4x4 quad bike (or walking) and your guide’s knowledge of the land, you’ll find that you’ll cover some ground. Along the way you’ll see red, fallow, and rusa deer as well as wild goats.

We’ll collect you from Chalet Eiger, and take you into the heart of the King Country. Rifles are supplied if needed. Please bring your camera, good walking shoes or boots and warm clothing. Warm clothing can be lent if needed.The prices for a day hunt, including a hearty lunch and pick up and return to Chalet Eiger are on request.

Hunting species: Red stag, Wild boar, Red and Fallow Hind, Goat, Turkey. Other species of deer are available, Rusa, Sika and Fallow. Different sized stags are also available. Taxidermy and expediting of trophies is not included in the price.



Fishing here can be done all year round; the difference is in how you experience it. Chalet Eiger works with fishing guides that have years of (fly) fishing experience (20+) in the North Island and Lake Taupo area, who will specialise in making your adventure happen, and place a high priority on providing excellent service. 

Top quality fly-fishing and fishing equipment, clothing, food and transport is provided; you merely turn up and enjoy the trip. Full day, overnight and multi-day fishing and fly fishing trips are available. 

Winter: May to September, is the time of the year fish are running up local rivers from the lake to spawn. Large runs of aggressive rainbows ranging from 4 to 10lbs+ can be followed up the rivers.

Summer: Sight fishing in crystal clear rivers and streams for large trout. Lots have headed up the river to spawn and are now on the way back down regaining health and weight. A 5 weight rod makes for exciting fishing.

The Tongariro River fishing season is from 1st December to 31st May. The best months are December and May, depending on seasonal floods. All other rivers are 1st October to 30th June, (approx).

Raft fishing (or drift fishing) is one of the best ways to access those remote areas, where others can't get to on foot. It is a great and inexpensive way to access those hard or impossible to get to places and can be taken over one or several days. Helicopter fishing and 4x4 vehicle fishing trips can be a several day adventure as well. Combinations such as flying up river by helicopter then rafting down the river and fishing along the way, might be a requirement to reach some parts of certain less accessible rivers.

Single and multi day trips are available on some of the best fly fishing rivers the North Island has to offer including Tongariro raft fishing, and can be personalized. We can provide 1 to 5 day raft fishing trips on the Tongariro, Mohaka, Ngaruroro, and Rangitikei rivers.


Taupo has some great golf courses, including the world renowned Wairakei International Golf Club. This course was rated in the top 100 courses in the world by the prestigious US Golf Digest magazine in 2005, and has been described by many international golfers as like 'playing in a botanic garden'.

Then there is the Taupo Golf Club, offering two very different courses that are well worth a visit. The Centennial Course at the club is the longest women’s course in the country and hosts many of New Zealand’s top amateur events. The shorter, flatter and easier Tauhara Course is a nice alternative to its newer neighbour. Both courses have fairway watering which makes them playable in all seasons.

Absolutely stunning is the Kinloch Golf Club.The course is designed by Jack Nicklaus and nestled in a residential community with breath taking lake views.  It is now rated within the top 100 courses in the world outside of the United States.  Jack Nicklaus used the natural environment in the design to dictate the shapes of his golf holes. This has produced a beautiful but exceptionally challenging links-like course, in a beautiful and natural environment.

All of these golf courses are within a 15-minute drive from Taupo Township.
