Rotorua - Geothermal and cultural hotspot!
Rotorua is well known for it's geothermal wonders and adrenaline-pumping activities, but did you know it's also a haven for mountain biking?
The outdoors is right on the doorstep of Rotorua. We highly recommend exploring the surrounds of Rotorua township to take full advantage of the lakes, mountain biking and walking trails, and natural hot water springs.
WHen you return to the compact CBD you'll find restaurants and cafes, and markets, and shops all close to the scenic lakefront and fascinating geothermal displays.
