Lake Taupo is the largest lake in New Zealand and formed from the depression of Taupo Volcano. The town of Taupo located on the lake shore, is well worth a visit. With plenty to do and see for adrenaline junkies, nature lovers, fishermen (or women) and water lovers. Located on the north island, along the famous Thermal Highway. You will see traces of geothermal activity at 'the craters of the moon' or further north as you head towards Rotorua.

New Zealand is often nicknamed the adrenaline capital of the world. And rightly so, there is an abundance of adventure experiences all over the country. The town of Taupo is no different. I was lucky enough to visit Taupo twice and also passed through a few more times just stopping for rest or food. I had hoped to do the jet boating through Huka Falls, but the weather on the week I had booked had been too bad (following weather bombs all over the North Island. I also had to alter a few of my other North Island day trips and an overnight hike and camp). But the weather was good enough for me to go bungee jumping. Quick Fact:
Bungee was the original spelling for this mad and exciting activity, but it was since popularised and spelt Bungy by kiwi's... So both spellings are now accepted.
