Recommended Taupo & Turangi fishing accommodation

Taupo is a popular tourist destination for many reasons aside from trout fishing, and it has many accommodation options. Turangi at the southern end of the lake is smaller and more rustic, with a focus on fishing, skiing and mountain biking.

There are many events In Taupo throughout the year and accommodation can book out quickly, so you should call or email and confirm your accommodation as early as possible with the option you choose below.
