Spectacular and awe inspiring rushing water and falls! Amazingly, very fit and brave young people dare to kayak in these rapids and do so repeatedly! I would have thought doing so once, and surviving, would be more than sufficient!

We stopped here after visiting Craters of the Moon right across the road. It was free to visit and we walked up to the bridge that crosses over the Waikato River where it narrows into a narrow volcanic canyon. The first thing you notice is the roaring sound of the river and then the amazing icy blue color of the water, known as "Huka blue". There is a hiking trail that travels along the side of the river for quite a distance on each side. We just walked down to the waterfall and watched the boat come up the river and position itself in front of the falls. We live near Niagara Falls, which is magnificent, and have been there many times, but we were impressed by the color of the water tumbling through the narrow chasm and enjoyed our visit here. It is a great place for photographs.

The power of the falls is amazing as is the noise. My review may be weak due to the fact I was taken here by a Kiwi and they had built up a picture of a most fantastic waterfall which wasn't quite what I expected. The paths were easy under foot. The toilets in the carpark were clean.

Wow, it sounds great. What did you like about it? The power of the water the loud sound and then the quiet waters as it made its way down river.

We made a quick stop to see the rushing water. No cost to visit and jet boat rides are available base of falls if time permits.
