Great Lake Taupo
Located in the heart of New Zealand’s North Island, Great Lake Taupō is undoubtedly one of the world’s most beautiful and magical places. One of the filming locations for The Lord of The Rings triliogy, the region is famous for the many activities on offer on and around the crystal blue Lake Taupō, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest fresh water lake.
Activities available in the area are as diverse as the landscape itself, which boasts beautiful scenery, breathtaking waterfalls and the World Heritage Tongariro National Park. The region is an active geothermal area and one of the unique differences as you’ll see spectacular steaming mountains, geysers, boiling lakes, bubbling mud pools and thermally heated hot pools. Home of the most visited tourist site in New Zealand, the mighty Huka Falls will leave you speechless.
For adventure lovers the region is ideal, with activities ranging from the highest drop zone for skydiving, bungy jumping, skiing on an active volcano, jet boating and world class trout fishing. So much to do... or relax in the thermal hot pools and do nothing at all.
