Lake Taupo is the perfect place to unpack and unwind

Historic, cultural, scenic wonderland…

Lake Taupo is the perfect place to unpack and unwind while you explore the Great New Zealand Touring Route. Here we Think Fresh – fresh water, fresh snow, fresh air, fresh trout, fresh people, fresh fun…you get the picture. Taupo district stretches from Rotorua to the southern boundary of the Tongariro National Park .

The physical environment of the Lake Taupo region is what makes us so unique. … Lake Taupo itself was created by the largest known eruption of the past 5,000 years – so big the sun went hazy in China. Today, what remains is a lake the size of Singapore and the largest fresh water lake in Australasia.

Just about everywhere you look you’ll see a volcano. Plus, we’ve got geothermal steam fields to visit and magical hot mineral springs to relax in. The region has just about every adrenalin-pumping adventure you could want on air, lake and land but if it’s the sedate life you are after then we are equally the perfect place to take it easy.
