Trip Advisor


Many locations in and around Taupo are free to visit and this makes Taupo the ideal place to explore. Some of these locations include the famous Huka Falls, the amazing Aratiatia Rapids (which fill as the gates on the dam at the top of the rapids are opened several times a day) and the spectacular Craters of the Moon or the magic of Orakei Korako, the Hidden Valley.

If the geothermal attractions around Taupo are not enough then Rotorua is only 50 minutes away by car. We are also only a hour and a half from the Waitomo Caves, just an hour from the ski fields of Mt Ruapehu and just 90 minutes from Napier and the Hawkes Bay. Taupo is the perfect place to base yourself as you explore the central North Island.

You are welcome to join us in our sports launch for a spot of trout fishing on the lake, world renowned for its wonderful fishing, or an afternoon's water skiing during the summer months, or maybe an hour's boating to view the famous Rock Carvings and explore bays and attractions seen only from the water.

Don't forget all the rivers and streams that the Taupo District boasts, including the world famous Tongariro River. With some of the very best trout fishing available anywhere in the world it is no wonder the district is considered the trout fishing capital of the world.

For those who are more adventurous you might like to try sky diving or even a jump off the Taupo Bungy platform poised 47 meters above the Waikato River. You could follow that with a jet boat ride between the Huka Falls and the Aratiatia Rapids with Huka Jet. The world famous 1 day walk - Tongariro Crossing is a must for fit folk. We can arrange transport to and from "Ambleside"

If you enjoy a more sedate lifestyle then you might like to visit the Botanical Gardens, which are within easy walking distance from Ambleside. Of course there is the Lions walk, which follows the shoreline of Lake Taupo for several kilometers, or you could choose from any of the five challenging and interesting golf courses in the area or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery that is Taupo.
