Get the Most Out of Summer in Rotorua

New Zealand summers are some of the best in the world. Nothing can compare to the sun hitting the gorgeous landscape, the fresh air in your lungs and taking part in so many of the adventures that the country offers travellers. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy it all, Rotorua is where you need to be during the Christmas break.

Rotorua and the great outdoors

Rotorua is known across the country for the geothermal hot pools, huge, spurting geysers, lush bush and mountain biking tracks. Whether you’re rafting on the rivers, hiking or cycling through forest or skydiving at fifteen thousand feet, prepare to fall in love with the town and the Bay of Plenty region.

Summer fun

Enjoying the outdoors is easy. Book yourself a week away in some top quality Rotorua accommodation and check out some of these must-do activities over summer.

Mountain Biking

Heralded as the world’s mountain biking capital, the town certainly lives up to its name with over 70kms of track to explore in the Whakarewarewa Forest. The local bike shops are a great place to start if you’re new – ask about guides or pick up one of the official maps. You’ll enjoy yourself whatever your cycling skill and experience. If you’re a little nervous, why not hire a guide for the day to show you around and get you back up to speed?

Whakarewarewa Geysers

The geothermal activity bubbling away beneath the surface of Rotorua can’t be contained at Geyser Flat. Whakarewarewa is home to 65 geysers and hundreds of hot springs. The main geyser, Pohutu, is an attraction in itself shooting over 100 feet into the air twenty times per day. Enjoy the outdoors and see the region’s most unique qualities at Geyser Flat in Whakarewarewa. Take part in a guided tour and learn about the region, its geology, history and culture while you visit.

White Water Rafting

Adrenaline pumping and completely unforgettable; who wants a peaceful kayak ride on the lake when you can get wet and get excited on a white water rafting trip at the Kaituna River! Tour guides operate every day that the weather is suitable and any age can enjoy the thrill of riding.

Scenic Flight/Helitour

The best way to see the region is from the sky. Take a helitour of the active volcano, White Island, to the north of the town or a scenic flight over Rotorua. Summer is the best time of the year to enjoy your time in the sky along with the view.

So get your shorts on, make the most of your summer and enjoy Rotorua!
