There is so much untouched beauty in the Western Bays of Lake Taupo that it has to be one of the top 10 things to do in Taupo. Whether it's a waterfall obscured by a rocky outcrop, bursting forth from a stream swollen by recent rain, or a ravine to nose the boat into to discover it's hidden secrets.

As we come alongside towering cliffs, cliffs that plummet hundreds of feet below the surface making you feel quite small or sandy bottom bays with water so clear beneath the boat you just have to dive in.

Visiting the Western Bays of Lake Taupo really is

one of the best things to do in Taupo.

Are you ready to discover it for yourself?

Are you an adventurer at heart?

I personally think kiwis are adventurous at heart, I know I am. So when I had the chance to get a glimpse into the western bays of Lake Taupo, a place inaccessible to most, I fell in love.

It's a place that seems untouched by human hand, and every time I visit, it feels as if I discover some new treasure!

I love to share this special part of our beautiful lake, so we have put together an adventure that I enjoy, knowing if I enjoy it, you will too.
