Taupo, especially in summer, is crowded. Wall to wall motels with cleverly designed architecture compete for the best vantage point for lake views. The town is supported by tourism with slick professionalism and one of the country’s biggest visitor centres. In peak summer season it is strongly advised to plan your trip to Taupo by booking well in advance. While the town has sometimes the hectic gaiety of a tourist town it is very easy to slip into the natural spaces of the Taupo region and truly get in touch with what brings visitors to Taupo. Peak season is summer with 2019 witnessing over 2 million visitors to the area. Off season, while chilly with brisk winds is quietly inviting with the lake itself, the motels not full of visitors vying for the best views of Huka Falls and the locals as always, welcoming guests.
