About Rainbow Lodge Backpackers

Rainbow Lodge was purpose designed & built for the needs of travellers by Mark Dumble and Sue Mrozinski themselves seasoned travellers. They had spent several years on the world's highways and by-ways and having accommodation experiences that are sometimes described as "Character Building". They settled in Taupo famous for its Rainbow Trout and beautiful scenery. Having had my own character building experiences I came to rest at Rainbow Lodge and worked closely with them for a year before they handed me the reigns.

Location Information

Taupo enjoys a small village atmosphere and a location on the shores of the country's largest lake with a backdrop of majestic volcanoes and mountain ranges.

We are on the fringe of the downtown shopping area - a five to ten minute walk will take you across downtown.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 1 day before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
