Rotorua offers visitors to New Zealand a chance to glimpse some of the country’s best natural attractions and take in traditional Maori culture.
Here you can enjoy mountain-biking adventures, scenic hikes and exhilarating white water rafting, or visit some of the incredible geothermal sites in the area. Thrill-seekers may want to visit the Kaituna River and the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world or try their hand at one of the many other adventure activities available here, from zorbing to luging – both of which started in New Zealand!
While fans of the Lord of the Rings series shouldn’t miss a visit to Hobbiton, where a guide will take you through the picturesque set used in the films.
Rotorua is known for its strong Maori culture, which is on display throughout the city. To get an authentic experience, we recommend a visit to Ohinemutu, where visitors are welcome to wander through the village and learn about the traditional ways of life of the Ngati Whakaue tribe who live here. A ‘must visit’ is the Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland – spend the afternoon wandering past bubbling mud pools, steaming geysers and gigantic volcanic craters.
