Rotorua is a highlight of any visit to the North Island. Great fishing, fantastic scenery, incredible volcanoes and thermal activity are just the start of what makes this town so special. Find your way around Rotorua by walking sections of the Rotorua Walkway. See geothermal areas, native wildlife and local historic sites en route. But to get a true feel for Rotorua, find out more about the local Maori culture. Witness the local spirit when you take in a performance or seek out a Maori guide to show you around the incredible geothermal landscape. Master artists teach carving and weaving, while the traditional Maori hangi meal and cultural performances can’t be missed.

There are two sides to this town – the indulgent offerings that earn Rotorua its reputation as the spa capital of the Pacific and the thrilling adventures to be experienced in the local mountains, volcanoes, rivers and lakes. Nothing says rest and relaxation like a soak in the hot springs, massage or mud wrap. But there’s plenty of time for that.

Thrill seekers haven’t got a minute to waste, with the rivers offering up the perfect opportunity for white water rafting. Everywhere you look in fact outdoor adventures await. Roll downhill inside a zorb, race a luge cart or take a flight over the active volcano of White Island. The summit of Mount Tarawera is the perfect spot for a hike around the crater’s edge, while the Whakarewarewa Forest is a favourite for mountain bikers.

Any way you look at it, you’ll never be lost for something to do on your Rotorua holiday.
