Geothermal attractions in Great Lake Taupo

The Great Lake Taupo region is a geothermal wonderland. Home to boiling mud pools, steaming vents, beautifully coloured volcanic rock and more.

Last month DK and Renee came to Taupo for a couples' retreat. This month they returned for a pre-ski season weekend away with the family and checked out a few of the 'thermal attractions' in and around Great Lake Taupo. They visited the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland where they checked out several geothermal attractions such as the Champagne Pools and the Artist's Palette area, as well as taking a look at some mud pools and watching the eruption of the Lady Knox Geyser.

The next day they were privy to a glass blowing demonstration at Lava Glass by Lynden Over, before enjoying lunch in the café and a stroll around the whimsical and vibrant Lave Glass Sculpture Garden. Their trip was topped off with a visit to the Wairakei Terraces Thermal Pools.

Next month... they hit the slopes!
