Lake Taupō is New Zealand's largest lake in the country. With some of the North Island’s most impressive landscapes right on its doorstep, the Taupō region is perfect for outdoor adventures
Taupō was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption so big it darkened the skies in Europe and China. Just north of Taupō you'll find New Zealand's most visited attraction, the magnificent Huka Falls, where more than 220,000 liters of water thunder over the cliff face every second. Taupō is a great lake for water-skiing, sailing, and kayaking. The Maori Rock Carvins at Mine Bay, which can only be seen from the water, make for a great boat trip or kayaking excursion. The forests surrounding the lake offer hiking and mountain biking to suit all levels of experience.
On the shores of New Zealand's favorite lake sits Taupo's Number One luxury lakefront accommodation, Taupo Sacred Waters Luxury Lakefront Apartments. Overlooking Lake Taupo this stylish luxury apartment complex provides an outstanding experience for visitors to the lakeside City of Taupo New Zealand. Sacred Waters Luxury Lakefront Apartments are Taupo's most central luxury accommodation choices. An easy walk to Central Taupo and a short drive to any Taupo tourist activity.
Mountain biking offers another dimension to being in the outdoors, providing a sense of freedom and adventure. It can be everything from a relaxed slow pace, to fast, technical, and physically challenging. Above all, it is a lot of fun! Pedal your way into some of the spectacular wilderness this region has to offer.
Prepare for the perfect fantasy experience with the thrills of a jet boat ride, the serenity of New Zealand’s untouched nature, the adventure of squeezing through tight rock passages, and the refreshment of dipping in a mystical hot spring waterfall. See for yourself why the native New Zealand Maori once fought over these mystical lands and fantasy-like caves surrounded by overhanging ferns.

Much of New Zealand’s bottled water comes from the Blue Springs in Putaruru. You can stroll to the springs along the riverside Te Waihou Walkway. You can’t miss Tirau – just look for the large corrugated iron buildings constructed to look like a sheep and a dog. This town is a little quirky!Plan Your Tour
