Taupo

The Great Lake Taupo region is 'Nature's Ultimate Playground’, centrally located in the middle of the North Island, it’s an adventure and sporting mecca and a nature-lover's paradise. The region is one of New Zealand's top tourist destinations with beautiful forests, volcanic mountains and the stunning Lake Taupo. It is the adventure capital of the North Island with jet boating, bungy jumping, mountain biking, snow activities in winter and sky diving on offer. Experience the raw beauty of the dual World Heritage area of Tongariro National Park on one of the many walks or simply relax in one of the region’s geothermal hot springs.

Taupo is a popular tourist resort town, nestled on the banks of Lake Taupo. Taupo offers world class fishing and boating. If you prefer more land based activities there's plenty of walks, biking tracks, golf, geothermal attractions and hot pools. more

The powerful beauty of the volcanic landscape that surrounds Taupo provides a dramatic backdrop to everything you do here and Mt Doom from the Lord of The Rings trilogy features in the background to Taupo.

Highlights around Taupo include the Tongariro National Park, the Orakei Korako Geyserland, the mighty Waikato River, Turangi (the North Island's trout fishing capital) and the amazing Huka Falls.
