Famous for its geothermal activity, Rotorua is a city like no other. Wherever you are the scent of sulphur is always present, steam rises from the ground, boiling mud bubbles away and roaring geysers fire skywards. The best way to experience Rotorua is to visit one of the many geothermal parks. At Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve you’ll find an array of volcanic wonders including the renowned Pohutu Geyser that shoots 30 metres into the sky.
Not only is Rotorua naturally unique, it is also rich in cultural history. Most of the city’s hotels stage Maori shows and traditional hangi meals, or you can venture offshore to Mokia Island for a Maori concert and hangi. Rotorua is the ideal place to experience time-honored and modern Maori traditions.
