Taupō is the perfect summer destination for the whole family. Explore the epic Great Lake Trails by bike, or race down tracks of Craters Mountain Bike Park. For a more relaxed vacation approach, try your hand at fishing or even fly fishing! And if you want to keep learning and educating yourself about Māori Culture and the history of New Zealand, visit the Wairakei Terraces. Taupō is the perfect destination for you!

Just 90 min by car from our lodge is the mountainous ranges of Tongariro National Park. The Tongariro Crossing is open all year round and the perfect hike to do whilst in the Central North Island. New Zealand’s largest ski and snowboard area with over 65 trails is also located there – a perfect activity to plan for the winter.

And if you are more interested in Après Ski, check out New Zealand’s highest café, the Knoll Ridge Chalet.

An interesting historic tour available until the end of September. Bookings essential.

Ces terraces, une des merveilles du monde, ont été détruites par l’éruption du Mont Tarawera en 1886. Retrouvées récemment sous la boue du lac elles y resteront ensevelies, mais on peut sortir en bateau découvrir le site.
