Taupo New Zealand
Located at the heart of New Zealand's North Island, the Lake Taupo district is an area of considerable beauty and diversity, offering a wide range of activities, adventures and scenic opportunities. Taupo remains a trout fishermen's paradise. The lake is superb with much geothermal activity in the surrounding region. The area's lakes and rivers are very popular for a variety of both winter and summer water sports, including sailing, water skiing and jet boating, with its neighbouring countryside providing the perfect environment for a number of land sports, including mountain biking and hiking.
