Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo is the largest fresh water lake in the southern hemisphere. Lake Taupo surrounded by beautiful forests, volcanic mountains and snowy peaks in winter is a hub for events and activities year round. There are many activities centered on and around Lake Taupo and the numerous tributaries that feed into it. World-class trout fishing, scenic cruises, kayaking, sailing, white water rafting, wakeboarding and summer time swimming are all popular with locals and visitors alike. The Great Lake Taupo area really is nature’s ultimate playground. The stunning vistas, lake-front cafes and the ever sought after New Zealand geothermal hot springs further making it a wonderful place to relax and escape busy city life.

Lake Taupo is the caldera of a large volcano which began erupting about 300,000 years ago and has produced two of the world’s most violent eruptions in recent times; the Oruauni Eruption and the Taupo Eruption. For geologists, Lake Taupo is one of the world's most formidable volcanoes and scientists are on constant lookout for the warning signs that herald the next big eruption. more

However, for most New Zealanders and overseas visitors, Lake Taupo is one big, beautiful lake and hugely popular for boating and fishing. In fact it is known as the world’s trout fishing capital. Fly fishing is allowed on all of the rivers flowing into the lake, as well as on the lake itself.

Accommodation in Taupo is widely available and includes hotels, motels, bed and breakfast accommodation, apartments, lodges, holiday homes, backpacker and campgrounds.
