"Lake Taupo" Taupo Tip by kenmerk

Taupo, New Zealand: 17 reviews and 21 photos

  Lake Taupo and the volcanoes of Tongariro...
by kenmerk

Lake Taupo is New Zealand's largest lake and is the unofficial trout capital of the Southern Hemisphere.

The lake is in the centre of the Northern Island and is quite scenic, nestled between Tongariro National Park to the south, and the geothermal areas of Rotorua to the north.

Careful at high season, as this area is quite popular with both locals and tourists... During my stay this is the only place where we encountered any really significant traffic jams on either island...
