Rotorua holidays - Fascinating, alluring and traditional

While Rotorua is renowned for its volcanic attraction, what many people don't realise is that it is actually also packed with traditional Maori culture - it's a fantastic location if you want to learn more about the heritage of New Zealand, as well as its present. The natural and cultural attractions found here are truly unique and awe-inspiring.

Immerse yourself in New Zealand's culture and natural beauty

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.
