Our Best Family Group Holiday Homes in Taupo
Taupo is an absolute otherworldly jewel in New Zealand’s north island and offers something spectacular for every traveler. As the world continues to open up and holiday plans are starting to be made, consider visiting the place that is considered the heart of Aotearoa.
Everything centers around gorgeous Lake Taupo – more of a sea, really, considering that it’s the size of Singapore. The lake itself is stunningly crystal blue, and there are countless activities taking place on the water. You and your group could go boating, kayaking, trout fishing and more — tours abound for your convenience, or you all could easily navigate activities on your own. Take your pick, or mix it up!
However, there’s also a ton going on AROUND the beautiful lake, and you won’t want to miss out on the action. There is practically every type of climate as you cruise the lake’s perimeter. Keep your eyes peeled for lush deciduous forest and arid desert zones. There are snow-covered ski runs alongside fresh water in the forms of rivers and waterfalls. The volcanic presence means there is abundant geothermal activity – get ready for refreshing hot springs and extraordinary views. There are countless options for dining out, ordering take-away food, or sipping an ale in an outdoor pub garden. Explore all the delicious aspects of the Taupo region while you’re here and sample the local cuisine and wines.
As far as accommodation, Bachcare offers numerous housing options that are cosy, spacious and chock full of all the modern amenities you need while you’re out of town. The best thing about all these places is that while they are all super beautiful and affordable, they are also ideal for hosting large groups on holiday – it’s a perfect excuse to invite the whole family!
