A perfect place to chill out after hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. We would recommend it to anyone who is looking to raft, hike, or spend some time in the great outdoors around Taupo Lake.

We love travel but we have day jobs so we stay put more than we would like. Hosting people from around the world gives us our travel fix and since we have traveled a bit ourselves we hope we have some great tips to share with our guests.
