An unforgettable journey through a volcanic and historic landscape

Explore Rotorua's geothermal areas and discover the unique culture of New Zealand's Maori people. This is a place where the astonishing power of what lies beneath comes to the surface. Rotorua tour highlights include White Island, one of New Zealand's most active volcanoes, estimated to be between 150,000 to 200,000 years old.

Explore Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve, where thermal activity produces geysers, boiling mud and silica terraces. Then embark on a spiritual journey across the Rotorua lake divide, to the island of Mokoia. Here you’ll listen to stories of the people who lived here, their triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses. Head to the heart of the ancient Kumara fields to sample regional dishes, infused with indigenous herbs and spices. It’s an eating experience you’ll never forget.

We’ll introduce you to a region of outdoor activities in this unforgettable volcanic landscape. You might even recognise the lakes, barren plains and jagged mountains from the The Lord of the Rings. We recommend Taupo as the ideal base for exploring. Visit Lake Taupo, Australasia's largest freshwater lake. It offers activities including swimming, boating and fishing. Stay alongside Huka Falls, where New Zealand's largest lake drains into its longest river. And in Waikato, explore the Tongariro National Park, New Zealand's oldest nature reserve.
