Bang in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island, Taupo is home to the Huka Falls and a lake larger than Singapore meaning watersports galore! We're taking dramatic mountains, surrounding natural hot springs and cascading crystal-clear blue waters reachable only by hiking or biking. Sound good? We thought so too. 

Taupo is perfect for waterskiing, sailing, kayaking and more. Take a lakeside stroll and gorge on a picnic, tick off a bucket list must do as you hike the Tongariro Alpine Crossing departing beautiful Taupo or for the best views in town, opt for a skydive for some seriously stunning views you'll never forget.
