Adventure

The Taupo region offers many adrenaline fill experiences from jet boating, bungy jumping, sky diving to riding the mountain bike trails.

A starting point is visiting Huka Falls with it sheer volume of water flowing over the falls amounting to 220,000 litres per second - enough to fill one Olympic sized swimming pool in 11 seconds!  Enjoy the walking tracks alongside the river and wander around the different viewing platforms, taking in the falls from all angles. If you want a different perspective and a taste of Taupo adventure take a jet boat to the base of the falls and get close enough to taste the spray!

The stunning Great Lake Trail follows the shores of beautiful Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest lake, from Waihaha to Whakaipo Bay.  This trail was officially opened in April 2014 and provides 71km of all-weather riding through native forest with views across Lake Taupo to the majestic Tongariro National Park.
