Don’t just dream of the one that got away…Fishing at Lake Taupo is a dream come true!

Day One:

Day One – Arrive to a glass of award winning wine to help you unwind within the peace and serenity that surrounds you. Relax in your spacious King size suite overlooking the lake and lodge gardens where everything has been created for your comfort. Stunning views of Taupo surround you in this piece of paradise. Relax in front of heartening log fires in the winter or take a stroll around the foreshore of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.  There is a complimentary bottle of wine in your room upon arrival and there are many great restaurants nearby. We are happy to make suggestions or reservations on your behalf.

Day Two:

Enjoy an early morning start with a full chef prepared breakfast before venturing out into one of the regional rivers for world class fly fishing. The rivers of the Central North Island offer unlimited opportunities for the keen angler, whether you drive, raft, or fly for the wily Browns of the Mohaka and back Country Rivers, or the fighting rainbows of the Tongariro and Tauranga Taupo Rivers. Your guide will pick you up from the Lodge and you will be back in time for a leisurely evening swapping fishing stories before deciding what you would like to do for dinner.

Day Three:

Another fabulous breakfast will await you again this morning before departing Lake Taupo Lodge for your next New Zealand experience.

What people are saying about Lake Taupo Lodge

"Thank you for fêteing us at your palace of trout!"

Jonathan Gold – One of the world’s best food critics / LA Times Food Critic

"Gary, what a magical interlude we’ve enjoyed at your lake retreat. You and Shirley are such warm hosts and Chris is a wizard in the kitchen. We especially loved what Chris did with Gary’s trout and we can’t forget Baxter and Zoe, fluffy companions to those 3 lovely felines."
