Centred in New Zealand’s beautiful North Island, Taupo is a destination full of endless activities - ranging from adventure and sightseeing to relaxation and leisure. For those looking to create a plethora of memorable experiences, Taupo is the perfect place to do so. Below are 5 awesome things to do in Taupo, as recommended by The Flying Trout Boutique Lodge.
1. Brave the Taupo Bungy
Experience the exhilaration of freefalling from New Zealand’s highest water touch bungy, reaching speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour as you plummet towards the beauty that is the Waikato River. The Taupo Bungy is the ultimate thrill-seeker activity, offering both solo and tandem jumps from a height of 47 metres. What better way to get that adrenaline pumping!
2. Admire the Huka Falls
The Huka Falls is one of Taupo’s main tourist attractions, showcasing the phenomenon of natural hydro power. Take a one hour hike up the side of the falls to bare witness to 220,000 litres of water per second hurtling over an 11 metre high waterfall. To experience the falls in their full intensity, you can book a jet boat ride or a river cruise and get right up and close to the waterfall action.
3. Jump on a bike
Taupo offers some of the best spots in New Zealand for mountain biking and cycling, including the Great Lake Trail and the family-friendly Craters Mountain Bike Park. Both young and old can explore the picturesque landscapes of the Taupo area from the seat of a bike, with various experience levels on hand.
4. Explore the Craters of the Moon
Walk amongst the lunar landscapes of the Craters of the Moon - Taupo’s geothermal walkway. The 45 minute walk allows you to take in the incredible sights of bubbling craters, steaming vents and the different coloured soils that make up this natural thermal activity wonderland.
5. Soak in a hot pool
After a day of adventure and sightseeing, what better way to replenish the body by bathing in the healing waters of one of Taupo’s many mineral-rich hot pools. Soak away all of your aches and pains from a day well spent exploring all that Taupo has to offer.
