The stunning Lake Karapiro is located on the mighty Waikato River on New Zealand's North Island
. The river is the longest in the country and the lake is one of the most beautiful lakes across New Zealand, which is no mean feat when you consider that it is a country renowned for its dazzling scenery! Artificially created by building a dam to harness the power of the water for the Karapiro Power Station, today the lake is a prime spot for water sports and relaxation. The area is shrouded in tribal tales and the scene of historical battles, and with several local attractions, is a great holiday spot for all. Check out our hotels in Karapiro and around Lake Karapiro to enjoy the very best that this lovely area has in store.
Days can be spent rowing, sailing, kayaking, jet skiing, canoeing, swimming and playing on bumper boats. The Karapiro Sands are great for beach volleyball and beach football. Alternatively, why not spend some time relaxing and unwinding alongside the pretty lake, soaking up the sun, admiring the views, and losing yourself in a good book? Pack a picnic and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Great for the whole family, everyone is sure to find something to make them smile at Lake Karapiro. Nearby, visit the dam for brilliant views.
