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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Waimangu Volcanic Valley and Redwoods Treewalk. Step out of the city life by going to Mt Maunganui Main Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rotorua: Experience Comvita (in Paengaroa), Mount Maunganui Base Track (in Mount Maunganui) and Waitomo Caves (Caveworld, Ruakuri Cave, & more). There's much more to do: hike along Blue Lake Track, take in the natural beauty of Orakei Korako Geothermal Park & Cave, head outdoors with Kerosene Creek, and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

To see ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Rotorua trip builder app .

If you are flying in from Ukraine, the closest major airports are Auckland International Airport and Hamilton International Airport. December in Rotorua sees daily highs of 25°C and lows of 17°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
