Another incredible season! Well done boys! There is something pretty special about the friendships you form throughout the season. After giving it your all week after week, your teammates probably feel more like brothers than just buddies. Whether you came out with a gold medal or a participation certificate, we think those bonds are worth celebrating! The best way to celebrate the season that was and gear up for an even bigger year to follow is with an end of season getaway.
We know just how busy life can be during the season, so we’ve gone ahead and planned an entire trip to one of our favourite places for the entire gang – Taupo. Your For the Boys Taupo package includes everything from accommodation and airport transfers to adrenaline-packed activities and after-hours fun. With everything under control, your only job is to round up the boys and get ready to make a toast to the end of the season!
Let’s kickstart the planning with the most important item on any holiday to-do list – the accommodation! It’s super important to find a place that ticks all of your boxes, without breaking the budget, and that’s exactly what we’ve done. For the Boys Taupo includes three nights of accommodation at our favourite hostel in the entire city. This backpacker accommodation is in the best location and has all the amenities you need for a super comfortable and ultra-safe getaway. Arriving on your return airport transfer, you’ll be checked into your 6-bed dorm by the friendly on-site staff. This team aren’t just a bunch of friendly faces, they’re also brimming with locals-only knowledge which they’re more than happy to share with you. With their insight, you’re absolutely guaranteed a once in a lifetime experience in Taupo. The beauty of this hostel is that it offers the perfect mix of common and shared spaces, with a private ensuite for every dorm room too. What’s not to love about that?

If Taupo is known for one thing, it’s the town’s beautiful lake. While there are plenty of opportunities to soak in the beautiful sight from the land, nothing compares to a day out on the water. Your three-hour cruise will take you past breath-takingly beautiful scenery, including rugged cliff faces, glistening blue waters and lush greenery. It gets better too. The boat is 100% BYO. That means you can bring all your favourite bevvies so that you can make a toast to your team and sink a few cold ones together. You can also make use of the boat’s BBQ, which is fully equipped for huge spreads of dude food. With incredible views, good vibes and plenty of food, this cruise is an absolute day well spent!
While teams come in all shapes and sizes, there is one thing they all share in common. A competitive streak. The season may be over, but that’s no reason to wave goodbye to all competitive until next year. Nup. We have other plans for you! Clay shooting is about to become your new favourite activity. The fun-spirited and group-orientated experience is an absolute adrenaline shot, and a great way to get everyone involved. After arriving at the facility, you’ll get an expert coach to familiarise you with the sport and teach you how to handle and fire the guns properly. Once you’ve got the hang of things, it’s time to turn your weapon on the clay pigeons (not real ones!) flying through the air. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned professional, you’ll feel the pump-up of hearing your shot being fired and watching it hit the target.
It’s time to refuel your body after a big day out with your teammates. There is something oh-so-nice about sitting down together for a group dinner, so we’ve lined up not one but two special dinners for the whole gang. We’ll kick things off with a three-course dinner at one of our favourite restaurants in the entire city. This place is known for its seasonally rotating menu of incredibly fresh and tasty local produce, so you’re in for a treat. Back it up again the next night with another two-course meal that is just as fresh, just as tasty and just as oh-so-memorable. Your second dinner comes with a complimentary 2L boot too. We weren’t kidding when we said we had something special lined up!
What’s a boys trip without a little bit of cheekiness? It’s time to really let loose and have some fun with your teammates by visiting Taupo’s most popular strip club. To truly get you in the holiday mode, we’ve even lined up VIP entry and a complimentary drink on arrival. Just remember, what happens on the boys trip, stays on the boys trip. Right?
