A small village sitting on the shores of New Zealand's largest lake, Taupo offers magnificent views of Lake Taupo and the surrounding mountains. The lake itself was created by a volcanic explosion over 2,000 years ago and the nearby Craters of the Moon Scenic Reserve features active geysers, boiling mud pools and steaming craters.

Taupo is a nature-lover's dream.  Enjoy the warm, geothermal currents at Lake Taupo's beaches or kayak to Mine Bay, where you will discover interesting Maori rock paintings. Explore the mountains on foot or by bike or simply relax in the hot springs just north of the village. Taupo is also a great jumping off point to visit the Tongariro National Park, Kaingaroa Forest or the Huka Falls - a spectacular waterfall that is the most visited attracton in New Zealand.
