Rotorua is New Zealand’s most popular tourist destination, mostly because of its unique geothermal activity. As you come into Rotorua, you will realize that you are in a very different place. The first thing you will notice is the distinctive odor of sulfur in the air.

Emphasized in the tours to Rotorua is its strong relation to the culture of the Maori. Visitors to Rotorua will discover some of the best trains for mountain bikes in the world, sixteen lakes, awesome trout fishing, and fantastic forest walking trails.

 

The four major areas of thermal activity in Rotorua are Waimangu, Whakarewarewa, Hell’s Gate, and Waiotapu. Whakarewarewa village is one of the most active thermal regions of Rotorua and is the location of the famed geyser, Pohutu. Other places to see in "Whaka" are the hot springs, hot mud pools, as well as a Marae.

Formed for more than thirty million years, the Waitomo Glowworm Caves has two levels that are sixteen meters apart.

 

The higher region is parched and consists of the cave entrance, as well as structures called the Catacombs, the Banquet Chamber, and the Pipe Organ. The lower area is made up of the Cathedral and stream passages.

A radically different picture will greet you at the Bay of Islands up north. An area made up of over a hundred islands, the Bay of Islands is popular for its natural beauty and sunshine. This was the location on which the initial contact among the indigenous people and the first settlers from Europe occurred.

One of the regions most sought after attractions is in the area off Cape Brett known as the Hole in the Rock. Trips are offered through this place via Mack Attack, a jet boat tooted to be the Northland’s fastest boat.

 

For beach lovers, Coromandel is the perfect place to visit. Some of New Zealand’s most spectacular beaches are found here including Hahei Beach and the Cathedral Cove.

Leisurely tours are available that take you to see much of Cathedral Cove, Hot Water Beach, and Hahei Beach.
 

Rotorua is an untamed reserve located a mere 50 minutes drive from Auckland. At the beach, visit the gannets colony as well as one of the most popular wineries in the area. See also Mount Eden and downtown Auckland’s main attractions.

Known as New Zealand’s most visited place, Rotorua should definitely be at the top of places to see. In Rotorua, there are several different activities you can choose from. When visiting this area of New Zealand, visitors are advised to stay at least two days in order to appreciate the region to the fullest.
