Things To Do In Taupo - Hukafalls Jet - Tongariro River Rafting - Tours Activities

Flanked by stunning volcanoes, bush clad mountains and a spectacular landscape lies the largest freshwater lake in New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere, Lake Taupo. The water is stunningly blue and the air fresh and unpolluted.

Lake Taupo was created by a volcanic eruption so big the sun went hazy in China. Almost everywhere you look there's a volcano. Just a few minutes north of the Lake at Wairakei you'll find geothermal fields, boiling mud pools and steaming geysers.

Lake Taupo is a great holiday destination in both summer and winter. Some of the best trout fishing in the world has international anglers flocking to the area while mighty mountain peaks draw skiers and adventurers alike to experience the pristine environment. When you're not on the lake or up a mountain, you'll find the Taupo town centre crammed with cafes and interesting shops. The nearby  area is great for picnics and nature walks—or you could take a thrilling Huka Falls jet boat ride or Tongariro river rafting right to the foot of the thundering water.

A few minutes south of the Lake is Tongariro National Park, New Zealand's first national park and a World Heritage area. It was created in 1887 when its three magnificent volcanoes, Ruapehu, Tongariro and Ngaruahoe, were gifted to the people of New Zealand by the Ngati Tuwharetoa people.
