Things to do Taupo

Lake Taupo
The stunning Lake Taupo is no ordinary lake. It’s actually a caldera, a flooded volcanic crater that was formed 25,000 years ago. These days, you can reap the benefits of such seismic activity with a dip in one of the dozens of geothermal hot pools that dot the shore around Tapuaeharuru Bay. If you’d rather stay active, the lake’s renowned for world-class trout fishing.
Taupo Volcano
Named after the flooded volcano that lies under Lake Taupo, the Taupo Volcanic Zone boasts a number of active peaks. If you want to get close to the action, take the one-day hike across the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. You’ll take in emerald-green glacial lakes, steaming vents, and if you’re lucky, the smoke-billowing top of the Te Maari Crater.
Māori rock carvings
They may look rather old, but these rock carvings were actually made by local artists in the 1970s. Still, they depict an ancient and defining tale – the great Māori migration to Aotearoa (present-day New Zealand) during the 13th century. You can paddle across Lake Taupo on a kayak tour to get a close look at the ten-metre-tall visage of Ngātoro, the chief navigator of the legendary Te Arawa canoe.
Lake Taupo Hole in One Challenge
Competition on the lake edge, participants pay money to attempt hit a golf ball in to a golf hole, which is set up out on the lake.
