No matter where you stay, there’s one thing guaranteed – views like something out of a coffee table book are around every corner and true Kiwi hospitality is at the core of your experience.
Many accommodation options along the Taupo town lakefront are within walking distance to Taupo town centre, or retreat to lodges further afield set in unique natural riverside settings, and on the southern shores of Lake Taupo. Turangi’s fishing lodges provide a truly memorable experience.
Exploring Taupo by campervan or motorhome is a fantastic way to explore the region. We encourage responsible camping fun at all our commercial holiday parks and campgrounds, designated freedom camping areas or Department of Conservation (DOC) camping areas.
Many New Zealand families also own holiday homes known as “baches” and rent them out for part of the year. Staying at a lakeside bach will give an authentic local taste of Taupo, but if that’s not your thing, you’re sure to be able to find a place to stay to suit your taste and budget.
If you love having the furriest member of your family with you on holiday, you’ll be pleased to know that many accommodation providers are dog-friendly. Just check their policy before you check in.
