A trip to Rotorua is a wonderful way to begin your exploration of New Zealand. Whether you want to experience adventure, eco-tours, the geothermal pools in the area or its stunning forest region, or be pampered at a local spa resort, there is plenty to enjoy in this beautifully green, culturally diverse and historic region. Visitors to the area can experience cultural enrichment by learning about the ancient traditions and modern customs of the Maori at Whakarewarewa – The Living Maori Village or the Tamaki or Mitai Maori Villages. Then try some cycling and mountain biking in this scenic area. The region offers good fishing, hunting and golfing activities to enjoy, too, including some great trout fishing options.
If retail therapy is more your style, there are numerous options available to buy gifts, curios, clothing, footwear and homeware and for fine dining your will be spoilt for choice with both traditional Maori and contemporary fare. For lovers of pampering or those in need of healing, the region offers several spa and wellness facilities offering a range of treatments that can help to refresh your mind and body in some of the world’s most lush and beautiful environments. Museums and galleries are plentiful in the area and include the Arts Village and The Blue Baths.
Most travelers visit the area in the summer (December to February) or autumn (March to May) months. During this time the weather is fine and clear. The winter months (June to August) are cool. While it rains throughout the year, the region gets more rain during winter. A number of festivals are held in Rotorua each year and it is a great idea to time your visits to take advantage of these festivities and lifestyle events. The Bike Festival, Home and Garden Show and the Blue Baths Annual Wedding and Special Events Expo are some great options to explore.
The winter months of June, July and August are the low season in the area when the weather is cooler and there is more rain. Special offers on airfare, hotel and spa packages are generally available during these months, though some high season specials may run for a brief time, before the high season begins. Keep an eye out for these very brief deals.
Once there, use your private rental car, local taxis or buses to travel around the city and do some sightseeing.
