Taupo District

Just because Taupo District is landlocked doesn't mean you'll miss the water: Lake Taupo is the largest lake in New Zealand, occupying about the same surface area as Singapore. Hugging this expansive body of water, the surrounding territory offers great opportunities to fish, swim, and enjoy a range of water sports. Be sure to venture back from the water's edge to take advantage of other outdoor attractions in Taupo District, including skiing trails, geothermal parks, native forests, and impressive waterfalls. Taupo District is in Waikato Region. Plan your visit to Taupo District and other destinations in New Zealand using our New Zealand tour itinerary planning website .
