Stroll through the streets of Rotorua, voted New Zealand's most beautiful city six times, and instantly feel like you have entered another world; where hot steam escapes from cracks in the road, back gardens come with their own natural mineral hot pool and the pungent aroma of sulphur exotically permeates the air. Although one of New Zealand's most popular tourist spots, Rotorua still maintains its small town charms.

A visit to the museum located within the famous Rotorua Bath House will educate and intrigue with its extensive Maori heritage collections. Be enriched by the Spirit of the Maori people and learn why the Arawa, the Maori of Rotorua, began the tradition of the cultural guides in New Zealand, bestowing the privilege of visiting some of the natural wonders of their homeland to the first Europeans here.

With its richness in heritage and culture, the magnificent geothermal experience and the astonishing natural beauty of the landscape, Rotorua is a major center for tourism and there is an abundance of activities ranging from spiritually fulfilling to adrenaline charged action. Whatever your desire, be it tame or tempestuous, Rotorua will sweep you away on a journey of discovery and wonder.
