Our Taupo accommodation is well placed for you to explore the Lake Taupo region. This is New Zealand's volcanic heartland and is rich in Maori tradition. It also has some of the country's finest untouched, uncrowded and unique landscapes. The lake itself was the result of the most violent volcanic eruption the world has seen in the last 5000 years - the ash affected the sunsets as far away as Europe and China. Maori legend explains the lake a different way. When Ngatoirangi, the chief tohunga (priest) of the Arawa people, first saw the region he was dismayed to find a barren basin. Realising his people needed resources to live, he plucked a large totara tree and hurled it into the crater to seed a new forest. His aim was true, but the wind flipped the totara and it landed upside down, piercing the ground with its branches.
