New Zealanders are renowned for going to extreme lengths to get an adrenaline buzz (this is the country where commercial bungy-jumping was invented, after all). And Taupo is ground zero for every activity that a thrill-seeker could wish to try.
Set off on alpine adventures in volcanic mountains, discover the mighty Tongariro and Waikato rivers and the largest freshwater lake in Australasia (plus more than 20 other lakes), thundering waterfalls and ancient native bush, and all the adrenaline that comes with such an epic landscape.
Hurl yourself from a skydive plane to get the most boast-worthy view of the entire region – from the mountains across the lake and out to the coast. Leap from the highest water-touch bungy platform in the country and take a dip in the clear waters of the Waikato River. You can hurtle down slopes on snowboards or toboggans, zoom across rivers in a jet boat, bounce through rapids on a white water raft, race V8 supercars or judder along bush tracks in a quad bike – if you’ve got the nerve, Taupo has the test for it.
