Surrounded by lakes and featuring impressive areas of geothermal landscape, the city of Rotorua offers an otherwordly landscape and a welcoming, peaceful environment, with the culture of the native Maori people very much in the foreground. Make time in your Rotorua itinerary to bathe in the therapeutic hot springs and to hike around the colorful, sulfurous lakes. Delve deep into traditional Maori culture by watching performances and tasting local delicacies in one of the many villages surrounding the city, and in the township itself. The internationally acclaimed mountain biking routes of the area provide a challenge for seasoned bikers, as well as a singular perspective on the scenery for those wanting to take the trails at their own pace. Plan a trip to New Zealand easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
