Taupō is defined by beautiful lake and mountain vistas, a boutique-style town centre just one block from the lake and unlimited recreational opportunities. Experience the thrill of adrenalin activities like jet boating, bungy jumping and sky diving or relax in a healing geothermal hot pool. Taupō is an ideal base for your North Island holiday with waterfalls and ancient forests to discover, world-class mountain bike trails, gourmet food, boutique shopping, art and craft galleries, and accommodation with million-dollar views.
Take a stroll or cycle along the idyllic shores of Lake Taupō, have your photo taken with the giant #LOVETAUPO lettering and enjoy coffee or ice cream at the many stops along the path. The town also has a busy events calendar that adds to the exciting buzz all year round.
The roar of Huka Falls is mind blowing. It’s where New Zealand’s longest river, the Waikato, is squeezed through a ravine of hard volcanic rock, and the result is 220,000 litres of water blasting by every second. View the falls from a footbridge right at the very top, or get up close with a jet boat ride.
