Kia ora and welcome to Taupo.

This is the Taupo region. The heart of Aotearoa New Zealand’s beautiful North Island. At the centre of our region is sparkling Lake Taupo, the great inland sea of New Zealand. As you travel around the lake, you will find every landscape you can imagine. Snow-blanketed winter ski fields and alpine deserts. Ancient forests alive with birdsong. Trout-filled rivers and the thundering Huka Falls. Steaming geothermal valleys with rejuvenating hot springs. Three towering volcanoes in the awesome and otherworldly landscape of Tongariro National Park.

  1. :

    Hi guys! We have just returned from this faultless trip. Taupo is great place to go, everything you need and the walks were all fantastic. Highly recommended!

  2. :

    A fabulous way to starrt our weekend in Taupo. This is such a peaceful, leisurely way to enjoy the lakes and check out the Maori rock carvings. There were 5 of us on the boat and we met some awesome people on board. We even paused for an unscheduled swiem by the rocks. I would recommend this tour – great value for money.
