Lake and river access are easy, free, and beautiful. Walking and biking are inexpensive options to get to the falls, craters, water activities, spas, and shopping. The sauna and hot springs were a superb way to wind down from all the activities.

After spending two days in Taupo anticipating the skydive with the sky draped in clouds, the third and final day was the bluest I'd ever seen the sky. This was actually going to happen . . . I was going to fall out of a plane and head straight for the ground!!!

The spectacular mountains and vast lake of Taupo, New Zealand, call everyone from adventure sportsmen, scenic photographers, wilderness hikers, fishermen, and beach huggers to arts and crafts collectors, specialty shoppers, or local and fine cuisine connoisseurs. And every day one returns to the famous hot pools for a well-deserved soak!
