Frequently asked questions

Don't forget to pack your sense of adventure and a willingness to get a little bit muddy! Rotorua is the ultimate destination for thrill-seekers, nature lovers and culture vultures alike. Your specific packing list will depend on the time of year you’re travelling, as well as your proposed itinerary, but as a rough guide, take some hiking boots for exploring the incredible trails, a swimsuit for soaking in the hot springs and geothermal pools, oh and don’t forget your camera!


A Rotorua holiday is jam-packed with adventure, relaxation and culture. This geothermal paradise in the heart of New Zealand's North Island has something for everyone. Some of the must-see sites include Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, which is home to incredible natural wonders like the Champagne Pool, the Lady Knox Geyser and the stunning Artist's Palette. Just be prepared for the funky smell of sulphur! Te Puia is the ultimate destination for Maori culture and geothermal activity. You can watch traditional Maori performances, visit a kiwi bird sanctuary and explore the bubbling mud pools and geysers. For those who are keen to get active on holidays, check out the Redwoods Treewalk. This network of suspended walkways takes you high above the forest floor, offering incredible views of the towering trees and the surrounding countryside. Of course, no visit to Rotorua is complete without spending some time on the beautiful Lake Rotorua. You can take a boat tour, go fishing, or even try your hand at stand-up paddle-boarding.

The answer depends on what kind of adventure you’re looking for. Summer (December to February) is ideal for outdoor activities – think hiking, biking and taking a dip in the crystal-clear lakes. Autumn (March to May) is perfect for sinking into the geothermal pools, while winter (June to August) in Rotorua is especially magical, with snow-capped mountains and steamy springs. Last, but certainly not least, spring (September to November) is a beautiful time to visit as the colour returns to the countryside.


What isn’t there to do in Rotorua?! A thrill-seekers paradise, those looking for the ultimate adrenalin kick can fill their days bungy jumping, white-water rafting, ziplining, mountain biking, luging and zorbing. Those who are seeking relaxation can sink into a therapeutic hot pool or mud bath, while those who are keen to learn about Māori culture can head to Te Puia to witness exploding geysers, carved masterpieces and try traditional hāngī. One thing is for certain, you won’t be bored in Rotorua.
