Lake Rotoiti, Lake Rotoehu and Lake Rotoma, Rotorua New Zealand. Lakes Rotoiti, Rotoehu, and Rotoma are close to Rotorua city

Lake Rotoiti, Lake Rotoehu and Lake Rotoma

Rotoiti is 14 kilometres long and less than 3 kilometres wide, and the deepest point is near the centre. The lake is a popular fishing and boating resort and hot-spring baths at Manupirua are accessible by boat on the south shore. Lakes Rotoiti, Rotoehu, and Rotoma lie along the northern rim of a large caldera, cut off by sizable lava flows on the south side. The cliffs on the north shore of Rotoiti and along Hongi's Track form part of the caldera wall. Lake Rotoehu has hot soda-spring baths at the south-east end, and Lake Rotoma is a popular picnic and boating resort.

There are plenty of accommodation opportunities around the shores of these fabulous lakes. So close to Rotorua city, yet surrounded by native bush an the birdsong of the melodic Tui and magnificent Wood Pigeon, these lakes are perfect for a tranquil base in which to come home to after a busy day of exploring the wonders of this marvellous region.
