The Lake Taupo region is one of the most popular destinations for holiday makers and international visitors, offering spectacular scenery and an abundance of adventure activities. It is no wonder that year after year, thousands of visitors flock to the area.
The lakeside township of Taupo is an idea base for exploring the central North Island, offering convenient access to many of the region’s most popular destinations and activities.
A highly active geothermal region, visitors can experience nature at its best, the lake itself is a crater formed by one of the largest volcanic eruptions in known history with reports of ash from it causing the sky to glow red as far as ancient Rome and China.
Lake Taupo is New Zealand’s biggest fresh water lake, and is similar in size to Singapore, giving you ample opportunity to explore its many bays and small villages scattered around the 160 kilometre drive.
