Lake Taupo Lodge
- Things to do
The following activities can be arranged and priced for you on application for conference groups and they make great work incentives for staff!!
The first trout were liberated into the waters of Lake Taupo, New Zealand's largest lake in 1887. They were the Tasmanian Brown Trout and the Californian Rainbow Trout. With few natural predators, an enormous food supply and hundreds of kilometers of prime spawning streams and rivers flowing into the lake, they thrive. Today, with a self sustaining population of Rainbow and Brown Trout, the Taupo region has cemented its name as one of the world's premier fisheries
Choose from the world-renowned Wairakei International Golf Club, Taupo Golf Club, Centennial or Tauhara Golf courses - all within a 15-minute drive from the township of Taupo.
There are literally dozens of hikes available including around the lake, along the rivers, native bush and mountain trails. Maps for these hikes are available form the Taupo Information Centre on Tongariro Street.
There are several boats that cruise the lake on a daily basis (weather and sometimes numbers permitting) for sight-seeing trips. Some offer lunch or a romantic dinner on board.
