From surf to summit.
The dramatic, snow-topped volcanic cone of Mount
Taranaki is a spiritual and physical force in
this region. The mountain is the source of over
50 rivers and streams, the home of many botanically
unique plants, and the subject of many stories
and legends. On sighting the mountain in 1642,
explorer Abel Tasman said it was “the noblest
hill I’ve ever seen”.
In the Maori language, Taranaki means 'Gliding
Peak', a name that ties to the legend of how the
mountain came to its location. As the story goes,
Taranaki once lived with the North Island’s
other great volcanoes (Tongariro, Ruapehu and
Ngauruhoe) but was banished for falling in love
with Tongariro’s wife, a smaller volcano
The mountain and the Tasman Sea, provide a natural
playground for travellers who enjoy outdoor adventures.
The region is also known for its creativity and
ingenuity - characteristics that materialise as
beautiful gardens, fascinating museums and highly
acclaimed art collections.
