Entertaining in any weather, Rotorua will captivate you with its shooting geysers, intriguing Maori villages and thrilling adventure activities.
Rotorua sits squarely on the Pacific Ring of Fire, so volcanic activity is part of the city’s past and present. The city is also the tribal home of the Te Arawa people, who settled in its lakeside geothermal areas more than 600 years ago.
Geysers, boiling mud pools, marae stays, hangi feasts, an authentic pre-European Maori village and indulgent spa therapies promise to impress. Rotorua also has a well-developed adventure culture.
Rotorua has a wealth of accommodation, shopping and dining options, so take your time enjoying the warmth and vitality of this special place.
