Mount Taranaki, 2518m, a volcano with a near spherical cone, dominates the countryside and the weather patterns, is surrounded on three sides by the Tasman Sea.

With spectacular views up and down New Zealand Mount Taranaki holds the title of the most climbed mountain in New Zealand due to its accessibility. Summit climbs are achievable within four hours in favourable conditions! Imagine climbing to the summit of a mountain during your trip to New Zealand!

Skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, tramping and all other alpine activities are possible in the Egmont National Park area.

Warning: Good level of fitness and experience required as this mountain is dangerous and has claimed the most lives in New Zealand.

The Tasman Sea, surrounds the province and provides consistent swells which wrap around the Taranaki coastline.

Somewhere on the coast you will find offshore conditions perfect for surfing. World Surfing, Knee boarding and Wind Surfing championships are held here.

There are reef, beach and point breaks scattered right around the province with some rides up to a kilometre long. The diversity and actual number of surf breaks is truly extraordinary.

A real surfer's paradise.
