Drove completely around the lake, the views change constantly, just amazing. Travel south from Taupo along State highway State 1 to Turangi, then from Tokaanu, the views from the mountains are awesome, and the countryside, spectacular.

Never miss the sunset! The view was awesome. We also did the boat cruise to the carving. We can do trout fishing. This is very romantic place. I recommend this place for couples.

Only saw some sections of the lake nearer Taupo but is a lovely lake with a beautiful view. Was bit cold and windy when we were there but would be lovely in the warmer months.

It was a holiday weekend & full of bad weather when we came to visit. As a result, we didn't spend too much time on the lake, but it still had nice views. Very picturesque.

We stayed on the bank of this amazing lake and it is enormous! If you didn’t know it was a lake, you would be forgiven for thinking it was sea. For a spectacular view of Lake Taupo, drive to the scenic viewpoint south of Turangi...More

Walk it, you won't regret it. We were lucky to see the mountains on the other side of the lake, in the Tongariro NP, snow capped after a heavy snowfall the night before. Breathtaking!

Such a beautiful lake, very picturesque. Also great for catching trout. Peaceful evening or early morning walks around the lake is a great way to exercise whilst on holiday.

There are plenty of spots, using google maps plot Taupo to Omori and you will find that it follows the lake and plenty of options for photos etc The challenge you have is, to ensure you are close by to shops etc and for... More
