Legendary Fly Fishing

Bryce Curle sharing his passion

Lake Taupo region a complete paradise not just for Fishing!

There are two sides to the Lake Taupō region. The relaxing and tranquil side many visitors crave is abundant with several thermal hot pools and spas, quiet walking trails, world class golf courses and many beautiful scenic attractions. For the adventure seeker, heart pumping activities like skydiving, mountain biking, bungy jumping and jet boating can be found all around the lake.

This is a water lover’s paradise. Boating, sailing, swimming, kayaking and parasailing are all sought after activities on the crystal blue lake which, along with the region’s rivers, also enjoys a reputation as one of the world’s best trout fishing destinations.

The Lake Taupō region is bustling with boutique shops, cozy cafes and award winning restaurants. Bring the whole family and visit the many attractions and museums that celebrate the area’s vibrant culture and history.
