The reputation of Turangi, New Zealand precedes it—it is the “Trout Fishing Capital of New Zealand”, after all. Looking for more? It’s on Lake Taupo, which was created by one of the world’s largest-ever volcanic eruptions (sorry, Pompeii). The resulting landscape definitely qualifies for #nofilter status. Check out our accommodation in Turangi and get ready for a holiday that’s bursting with excitement.
Get inspired with a look at some monster trout from the underwater viewing chamber of the Tongariro National Trout Centre, then take some tips from anglers along the River Walk. Ready to cast your own line? Fly fish anywhere along the Tongariro River or charter a boat and cruise the deltas. Book Turangi accommodation in March for the biggest rainbow trout or May to catch the start of spawning season.
You don’t have to hang with trout your whole holiday, though. Take a hike in Tongariro National Park. The Alpine Crossing is a challenging trail with uber-rewarding views: green-blue volcanic lakes framed by vivid fields of buttercups and clear views across active craters. This is a case of “a picture is worth a thousand words”—and your snaps will probably be worth even more.
If you’re flying in, the nearest landing strip is Taupo Airport (TUO), 40 km north. Your best bet for getting to Turangi hotels and around town is to book one of our car hire options. Plus, you won’t have to carry all that trout around in a wheelbarrow like it’s 1895. Coming from Auckland is another popular option, as it’s just a 4-hour drive south.
Some of Turangi’s biggest fans are Queen Elizabeth and former American President Jimmy Carter, so it’s obviously a pretty awesome place. Book your accommodation and airfares together with Turangi holiday packages, and you’ll save enough cash to feel like royalty (or the American equivalent).
