Discover The Lakes of New Zealand
Though New Zealand is comprised of two main islands, the majority of the country’s lakes are located on its South Island. The largest, Lake Taupo is surrounded by thriving geothermal activity, evidence of the ancient volcanic eruption that originally helped form the body of water. Lake Wakatipu is New Zealand’s longest lake, and in fact the country’s third largest. It is shaped like a lightning bolt, and is bordered by mountains. Lake Wanaka is popular for fishing, boating and swimming, and is the fourth-largest lake in New Zealand. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at these and more of New Zealand’s most beautiful lakes.
