Kia ora and welcome to Taupō

This is the Taupō region, the heart of Aotearoa New Zealand’s beautiful North Island.

At the centre of our region lies sparkling Lake Taupō, the great inland sea of New Zealand. As you travel around the lake, you will encounter every landscape imaginable: snow-blanketed winter ski fields and alpine deserts, ancient forests alive with birdsong, gin-clear rivers teeming with trophy trout, and the thundering Huka Falls.

Ride the Supervolvanics, more than 380 km of year-round, bucket list mountain biking across 30+ trails for all levels. Explore elite golf courses, steaming geothermal valleys with rejuvenating hot springs and marvel at the three towering volcanoes among the otherworldly landscape of Tongariro National Park.
