Explore the Beauty of Rotorua

Rotorua is a unique city that’s set on New Zealand’s North Island. Built over an volcanically active landscape, the natural and cultural attractions found here are truly unique and awe-inspiring. It's no surprise that Rotorua draws in so many visitors each year.

Built over a hive of geothermal activity, this is an outdoor playground quite unlike any other – a place where you can dodge bubbling mud pools and dip into thermal pools one minute then go shopping for traditional Maori crafts the next.

This is one of the most popular destinations on the North Island and with good reason – the sights you’ll see here are spectacular.

Rotorua is a mix of natural and man-made attractions, infused with indigenous Maori culture. Take a helicopter ride over this extraordinary place, visit the thermal spa for a spot of relaxation or delve into the unspoiled landscape for a true taste of authentic New Zealand.
