Why Rotorua is one of New Zealand’s hottest destinations
It’s hard to pick where to start in this city. It’s just as famous for its gurgling geothermal spas and mud pools as it is for its culture, and then there’s the playground of adventure activities to choose from as well.
The entire area is a geothermal hotbed of sulphur, clouds of steam and spectacular geyser activity. Watch as the the Pohutu Geyser erupts about 20 times a day, reaching heights of up to 30 metres into the air, and take a stroll through the thermal reserve in the central city to watch the mud pools bubble, see the colourful hot lakes and dip your toes in the free foot pools. For a more in-depth experience, book a spa such as the Hells Gate Geothermal Park Mud Bath Spa, where you’ll find the largest hot waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere. The mud is said to have various health benefits, and there’s no doubt about the relaxation benefits of a mud facial, body scrub or massage.
Evidence of Maori culture is inscribed on every inch of this beautiful city, with a number of ways you can learn more about the indigenous people and history of the land. Be sure to take in a cultural performance at the Tamaki Maori Village for an evening of re-enactments, stories, hangi feasting and more. Another significant site is the Buried Village of Te Wairoa, a settlement that was destroyed in 1886 by a massive volcanic eruption that took 150 lives and eradicated the stunning Pink and White Terraces. Today, you can enjoy a guided tour to hear the stories and history of the area.
