Imagine an ancient volcanic crater the size of Singapore, formed by an eruption so powerful the sun went hazy in China. Imagine it filled with the most pure, clean and clear water from mountain top and rain. This is one of New Zealand’s most sought-after holiday destinations, Lake Taupo.
Lake Taupo (with her backdrop of volcanoes and mountains) provides endless beauty, adventure, relaxation and sightseeing.
Hire a kayak and explore the calm azure waters or paddle to a secluded bay, join a boat cruise and learn about the fascinating history of the region from a friendly local guide, go swimming in some of the freshest water you’ll ever experience (heaven on the skin!), picnic lakeside at your choice of so many beautiful beaches, mountain bike or jog a lakefront trail, discover natural hot pools, whiz about on a Jet Ski or join a tour group to see spectacular and mysterious Maori rock carvings. To see the beauty of Lake Taupo from above, take a scenic-flight in a Helicopter or Floatplane, or experience the thrill of tandem sky-diving, where (after a freefall) you’ll soar like an eagle over the lake and township...
Lake Taupo has it all and more!
If bringing your own boat on holiday, you’ll be pleased to know that a boat launching ramp is located just 2 minutes drive from Acacia Cliffs Lodge (plus other boat ramps less than 10 minutes drive from our lodge also).
