Taranaki Region

Under the watchful eye of Mount Taranaki, wild Taranaki Region welcomes visitors seeking an adventure holiday. The rugged coast boasts great surfing opportunities, while the quaint alpine towns offer slower-paced Taranaki vacation ideas. Head down one of the region's many rivers for a day of rafting or kayaking, or enjoy a gentle stroll along the coast. Then, of course, there's the small matter of the mountain, encouraging you to climb it (or at least venture up a little bit of the way). Explore the family-friendly attractions of Taranaki Region and add them to your vacation plans using our New Zealand trip planning website .
