Lake Taupo District
Fishing Taupo to catch a wild trout, swimming in a crystal clear lake, skiing on a volcano or walking in native bush - this is the essence of Great Lake Taupo. Situated right in the heart of New Zealand's North Island, Taupo, Turangi Tongariro and Mangakino, which makes up the Great Lake Taupo region, is in the centre of it all.
The region is truly blessed with world-class natural attractions: Australasia's largest fresh water lake, volcanic wonderlands, silica terraces, a dual World Heritage national park and the famous Huka Falls. When combined with the region's exceptional line-up of events, it's no surprise Great Lake Taupo is a popular holiday destination with Kiwis and international visitors alike. It's the type of place where the people are genuinely friendly; where "gidday" in the street can lead to an impromptu dinner invitation; where you arrive as a visitor but leave as a friend. You can't buy that kind of welcome.
From world-class golf to the ultimate helicopter scenic flight, kayaking to rafting, skydiving to jet ski hire, a leisurely stroll around the lake to fishing for the region's legendary trout, the Great Lake Taupo region offers true kiwi experiences that will make your holiday a truly memorable one.
Hire a Jet ski or sit back relax and catch a trout on your own private charter boat and enjoy what Lake Taupo has to offer.
