“WOW”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The color of the water is just gorgeous! We hiked along the river on one side, then crossed over & went down the other. Can't believe that some people actually kayak on that river!

“Good to see but not worth a major detour”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you seen any of the big falls such as Niagra then Huka is pretty small in comparison. If you are in Taupo then they are worth seeing, but they are simply not worth a major detour - unless you want to go jet boating on the falls, which is worth a detour.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

It is definitely worth a drive to see the falls and if we had time it would have been nice to do the walk from town. The amazing thing about the water in New Zealand is the clarity.

“Mwoah”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

I did this hike from Taupo centre, it was ok, but not stunning. Bring your ´togs´ for a swim in the hot streams.

“arrestingly ice blue waters”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Very popular falls, tho most people drive there. If you walk there, you get the trail mostly empty, tho I imagine that in the summer months, there are more walkers. There are different vantage points to the waterfalls, and the one that is further down the river is much better and not as many people. Plus the ice blue water color is more pronounced there.
