Rotorua captures some of the best New Zealand has to offer, all in one place. There are few better places to discover traditional Maori culture, and the region’s unique geothermal landscape provides the perfect setting for adventure.

Spectacular geysers, bubbling mud pools and thermal hot springs have been attracting visitors to Rotorua for more than 150 years, while its myriad lakes, rivers and streams and thousands of hectares of forest make it an ideal location for fishing and mountain biking. 
It’s also home to a number of world first adventure activities, as well as more traditional thrills such as skydiving, bungy jumping and white water rafting.
Rotorua’s Maori cultural experiences are many and varied, from cultural performances and traditional feasts to expert carving, weaving and storytelling.
