Taupo is located in the most thermally active zone of New Zealand. The city is located in the central part of the North Island, on the shores of the lake of the same name. A picturesque pond formed on the site of a huge mountain, which was destroyed during a mighty eruption of a volcano at the end of the 2nd century AD. The lake is a caldera, that is, the hollow of a giant volcano that formed after the eruption. Today you can ride on the lake, which still has hot currents, or go fishing. It is worth a trip to the caves of Maroo to see the ancient cave paintings; see the famous Huka Falls; visit the thermal park with hot springs; take a bungee jumping from a platform into the Waikato River; fly over the city and the lake in a helicopter or plane, as well as a parachute jump.
