Lake Taupo is New Zealand's largest lake - perfect to explore by kayak.

Kayaking in Lake Taupo is a unique New Zealand experience. The scenic Western Bays are home to spectacular Maori rock carvings - accessible only by water. These carvings depict visionary Maori navigator Ngatoroirangi, as well as two smaller figures of celtic design. In summer you can take a refreshing dip in the lake, and many kayak tours offer a picnic lunch as well as cultural commentary on the Maori myths and legends that surround the area.
