Extreme Stuff in Great Lake Taupo

 Taupo Bungy


Why not throw yourself off the side of a cliff? If you’re thinking about taking the plunge while here in NZ –  Taupo is home to the highest water touch bungy (47m) in New Zealand.


Jet Boat

One high-octane, adrenaline-pumping activity not to be missed while in our fair town is a Kiwi invention - the jet-boat ride. Take a few mates and let your hair down, just be prepared to get a bit wet! 

 Turangi Paintball


Grab your mates and have a shoot up (with paint that is - we do not encourage guns here in NZ). 2 paintball companies - one in Taupo, one in Turangi.

Quad Bike & Motorsport

Explore the great outdoors on 4 wheels. Quad-biking is an excellent wet weather activity. If you want speed, our race track might be just the thing.

White Water Rafting

Raft the white waters of the Tongariri River down sourthern Lake Taupo. This trip suits any ability, so even if you’re a terrified first timer it’s no problem! 

 Ruapehu Whakapapa Ski

Ski & Snowboard

We have great skiing all the way till spring. Rather, the best skiing has been known to happen in spring so Mt Ruapehu is the place to be!

 Taupo Tandem Skydiving


Taupo is THE skydive capital of the world! And the cheapest place in NZ to do it too. What are you waiting for?

 Jet Ski Hire Taupo


Jet ski, wakeboarding, biscuits, yachting and more. Many places offer some fabulous equipment for your play pleasure in the water.
