It is a source of entertainment for those seeking relaxation or those seeking thrills. Taupo activities are as varied as the landscape itself, which claims beautiful geothermal scenery, breath-taking waterfalls and world heritage listed forest reserves. You'll see spectacular steaming cliffs, geysers, volcanoes, boiling lakes, bubbling mud pools and many thermally heated hot pools.

The lake is abounding with activity providers. Turangi, at the southern end of Lake Taupo, is the fly-fishing capital of New Zealand and is internationally renowned as one of the world's best trout fishing destinations. The region's rivers are stocked full of trout and provide year-round fishing. Grab a licence and go yourself or hire a guide to take you into the spectacular wilderness.
Take to the waters boating, sailing, kayaking, parasailing, water skiing, jet skiing or swimming. There are numerous charters for hire. Which one suits you: yacht, steamboat, launch?
