Rotorua has plenty to offer for groups large and small. Here are the top recommendations for boys weekend activities in Rotorua.
Hit the trails
Get your blood pumping with some good, old-fashioned competition among friends at the Rotorua Redwoods Whakarewarewa Forest. You can either rent bikes in town or bring your own and test your skills on trails for all skill levels. The 130 km of well-maintained tracks carve through varied terrain and unbeatable scenery, making this one of the premier mountain biking destinations in the country.
Take it up a notch
Keep the adrenaline rush going with a visit Rotorua’s Agroventures Adventure Park. Here you can choose from six extreme activities that will test your nerves and push your thrill-seeking limits. Experience their famous Rotorua bungee or test yourself against your buddies on their Shweeb, the world’s most efficient human-powered machine. Save money and experience it all with a Package Deal or a Group Booking for groups of 10 or more.
Smash the long drive
Arikikapakapa, also known as the Rotorua Golf Club, is one of New Zealand’s leading golf courses, with many holes played through active geothermal areas. The 18-hole course is located conveniently on the South side of town on Fenton Street and is open to the public daily. For an additional challenge, check out their weekly Sunday Speedgolf events. The first person to lose a ball in the geothermal lake buys the first round of beers.
Throw back a few on Eat Street
Cap off a day of adventure by unwinding on Rotorua’s Eat Street; here you will find an exceptional selection of restaurants and bars to suit groups of all sizes. For the beer lovers, look no further than Brew Craft Beer Pub, where you can sample a range of locally brewed beers from the award-winning Croucher brewery.
