If you’re traveling to New Zealand, make sure to hit-up the “thermal wonderland” – Rotorua, 3 hours south of Auckland. Built over a geothermal hot spot, Rotorua is a city constantly erupting with steam, hot water, and mud.

Some of the must-see highlights of Rotorua include:

  • One of the Thermal Parks –Te Puia or Wkakarewarewa Thermal Village
  • Skyline Skyrides – ride a gondola up Mt. Ngongotaha for great views of the area

  • Rainbow and Fairy Springs – New Zealand wildlife park

  • The Agrodome – a park/museum about rural life in New Zealand (Don’t miss the sheep show!)
  • Attend a traditional Maori Hangi (feast)
Rotorua is right on the shores of Lake Rotorua, while several other lakes are in the surrounding areas. Spend a day on the water, whether that’s trout fishing, boating, or relaxing on the shore. Spend another day hiking or mountain biking in the nearby Whakarewarewa forest or traveling up north to the sunny Bay of Plenty.
