Lake Taupo is so beautiful! There is so much to do. We did a kayak trip, took a helicopter ride, rode jet boats and ate meals overlooking the lake. Definitely worth checking out!

Looking down from the approach is breathtaking. Huge and humbling. Lots to do around the lake but you will need a car to reach everything, well worth a visit.

I just LOVE swimming in Lake Taupo. I love the clear water. I love the view. I love that it's refreshing. I love the way the ducks swim up to say 'hello'.

Absolutely fresh around the lake. Clean environment. Not too busy. Water was extremely cold in December. Lovely area for a picnic.
