Arrive – Unpack – Relax – Enjoy – Stay a while


There is so much to do

Not enough time to do it all


Taupo and the region has so much to offer it is hard to know where to start & what do when you have limited time available. From our experience in the area and from our many guests we have put together some suggested itineraries for 1, 2 or 3 day stays.

For more information on each suggestion please see the individual web sites,   or
