Holiday In Rotorua

Thanks to its very unique place in a volcanic zone, Rotorua is full of beauty and buzzing with geothermal action, from whopping geysers to glorious hot baths. 
Yep, there’s plenty to see and do in this Bay of Plenty region: fascinating Maori history, fun-filled adventure parks, nature galore and places to eat, drink and shop. Live every lastminute with one of our Rotorua holiday packages.

Things to See and Do

The Maori people of Rotorua have always used mud baths to relieve joint pain, muscle pain and other problems. Now it’s your turn! Hell’s Gate is New Zealand’s biggest geothermal attraction, but it’s the opposite of hellish! Take a guided tour and see some amazing sights, including steaming lakes and a bubbling mud volcano! Then lie back and rejuvenate in a mud bath or sulphur spa, before cooling off beneath a waterfall! Wai Ora Lakeside Spa Resort is the perfect place for a manicure, pedicure, herbal sauna or a soak in a hot mineral pool.

Itching for something a little more adventurous? How about parasailing on Lake Rotorua, river rafting on the Kaituna or kayaking into a cave full of glow worms at Lake Rotoiti? Rotorua has 18 volcanic lakes, which are awesome for activities or just a good look-around and photo op. For a bit of luxury, take a cruise along gorgeous Lake Tarawera and then cool off at Hot Water Beach (Te Rata Bay), for a totally invigorating dip in the thermal waters.

Rotorua also has some wicked mountain biking trails, lush forest ziplining, nature tracks and an adventure park called Agroventures, which has a stack of crazy thrills you won’t find anywhere else.

Rotorua Museum boasts art, history, a nice café and gorgeous gardens. And if an authentic look at Rotorua’s Maori past sounds exciting, take a 15-minute drive to the Tamaki Maori Village. Tucked away in an ancient forest, this is the place to see a traditional ceremony, feast on some hangi, listen to campfire tales and even spend the night.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

In Rotorua you can have your pick of boutique shopping, Maori clothes and crafts, health and beauty shops, and cool book stores.
Rotorua’s restaurants offer a superb selection of tasty treats just waiting to be tucked into. A good place to start is ‘Eat Street’ (yep, that’s how it’s spelt). Under cover and lit up at night by colour-changing lights, this strip has fine restaurants, cafes and craft beer bars. You can find it on Tutanekai Street, the very same spot the Rotorua Night Market sets up on Thursday night with food, crafts and local musos.
And the market isn’t the only place that goes off at night in Rotorua. Spend your nights sipping cocktails at historic bars or jazz clubs, getting down and dirty with the backpackers, watching live music or enjoying hearty Irish beer and food.

Getting here

Go on. Bundle your Rotorua accommodation and flights package together with us and get ready to enjoy the geothermal goodness of Rotorua.
