Taupo is a popular resort town and NZ holiday destination offering a myriad of activities and attractions all year round. From Taupo you can discover volcanic wonders, embark on all sorts of thrilling adventures and marvel at the natural attractions found all over the volcanic plateau.
Taupo is the gateway to the World Heritage Listed Tongariro National Park and is in close proximity to the popular ski fields of Mt Ruapehu. This vibrant city is home to New Zealand’s largest lake, formed by a massive volcanic eruption over 26,000 years ago. Its crystal clear waterways provide anglers with many beautiful spots for trout fishing, recreational boating and other water sports. Huka Falls is one of the most visited natural attractions in New Zealand and its pristine waters provide some rather angry rapids for white water rafting and extreme jet boat tours who come right up to the base of these powerful falls.
Taupo is considered the adventure capital of New Zealand’s North Island and being centrally located, it is the perfect base in which to explore surrounding regions; the vineyards of Hawkes Bay and the neighbouring tourism hotspot of Rotorua.
