Tourism New Zealand features Whakaipo Lodge

Tourism New Zealand chose Whakaipo Lodge to feature in their new promotional video of Taupo's Great Lake Trail. The video was shot over 3 days in March and the crew based themselves at Whakaipo Lodge during the shoot.

The video is one of a series that Tourism New Zealand will use to promote  Nga Haerenga, The New Zealand Cycle Trail, to international target markets. Tourism New Zealand worked with the local regional tourism organisation, Destination Great Lake Taupo and trail manager, Bike Taupo, to select Whakaipo Lodge for the production. It was specifically looking to promote boutique and luxury accommodation on the National Cycle Trail and located at Whakaipo Bay, Whakaipo Lodge was perfect as a base for the shoot.

The lodge's sister company, Adventure Shuttles also featured in the shoot, providing transport for crew and bikes.
