New Zealand North Island
Lake Taupo is centrally located in the middle of the North Island, approximately 3 1/2 hours drive from Auckland and 4 1/2 hours drive from Wellington.
The beautiful Lake Taupo is about the size of Singapore – more of an inland sea really. It was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption. And you’ll see evidence of the lake’s fiery birth in the geysers, steaming craters and boiling mud pools. At some of Lake Taupo’s beaches, swimmers and paddlers can enjoy warm, geothermal water currents.
Taupo is a great lake for water-skiing, sailing and kayaking. The Maori rock carvings at Mine Bay, which can only be seen from the water, make for a great boat trip or kayaking excursion.
But what Lake Taupo is really known for is fishing. The town of Turangi has the largest natural trout fishery in the world. Turangi also happens to provide a convenient base for exploring Tongariro National Park. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is New Zealand’s most popular day walk. There’s a genuinely friendly culture here and plenty of accommodation – so why not stay awhile?
