New Zealand

Stay: Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo is the largest fresh water lake in Australasia created by the world's largest volcanic eruption of the past 5,000 years. The results of its earth shattering creation can be seen everywhere with active volcanoes, spectacular steaming cliffs, geysers, boiling lakes, bubbling mud pools and floating rocks called pumice.

The town of Taupo, which is one of New Zealand's leading holiday destinations, is just 50 minutes drive south of Rotorua on the shores of Lake Taupo. It's known for its water sports, including world famous trout fishing and adventure activities. Regular coach and train services operate to the Tongariro National Park and scheduled flights from Auckland and Wellington fly into Taupo.
