Taupo is blessed with a number of activities and attractions. There is something for everyone from those seeking an adrenalin rush to those wanting a relaxing break away.

No matter what the weather there are a number of things to get you out of your motel room and exploring the region.

Below are some ideas to keep you occupied during your visit.

We are here to help with the planning of your stay and are happy to book activities for you. Just drop us an e-mail on bvtaupo@xtra.co.nz.


Adventure Activities

If you are looking for excitement why not do a skydive over the Great Lake, dive from The Bungy platform, Jetboat the Aratiatia Rapids on the Waikato River or Jetboat to the bottom of the spectacular Huka Falls. Wanting a little less action then maybe a cruise on Lake Taupo or a scenic floatplane or Helicopter flight over the majestic mountains of the Tongariro National Park might be more your style.

Enjoy water activities such as kayaking or whitewater rafting. Winter lets you experience the thrill of snowboarding or skiing on the slopes of the nearby Mt Ruapehu ski fields.

Relaxing Activities

No visit to Taupo is complete without witnessing the power of the famous Huka Falls. Whilst in the area you can take a trip to the Honey Hive, Volcanic Centre or enjoy fresh prawns at the Huka Prawn Park.

There is an artistically diverse arts trail with must see galleries and studio's including the one at Lava Glass on SH5. After a busy day relax in an exothermally heated hot pool.

We are lucky enough to have a number of fine golf courses within close proximity to the town centre and a range of walking tracks to suit all fitness levels.

Fishing

Great Lake Taupo is home to both the Rainbow and Brown Trout and fly fishing is one of the most popular recreational activities. However the fishing is controlled and you must purchase a licence and may only catch three trout per day.

There are a number of guides who use their inside knowledge to show you the best fishing spots on the Lake and in the nearby rivers.
