Rotorua Day Tours

A geothermal wonderland of boiling mud pools and spectacular geysers awaits visitors to Rotorua, a dream spot for sightseeing and a region steeped in Māori legend, history and culture. Its landscape is a mix of lush fields that support a thriving agricultural industry and beautiful lakes, and it seems everywhere steam rises from the ground, hinting at the active world beneath.

Marvel at the natural wonders of Te Puia and explore its thermal valley of geysers, streams of boiling water and hot mud pools. Get an insight into Māori culture through performance and traditional carving, weaving and art all created on site. The Agrodome is one of New Zealand’s most loved attractions and is a fun window into farming culture with a sheep show, shearing and dog trials. Native flora and fauna is on display at Rainbow Springs Nature Park, including New Zealand’s national icon, the kiwi, where a special Kiwi Encounter lets visitors see the nursery and hatchery for these endangered birds.

Take a day tour from Rotorua and visit Matamata to see where movie magic was made with a Hobbiton Movie Set Tour, or choose from our Waitomo Caves tours to marvel at the incredible limestone formations and enjoy a boat ride through the glowworm grotto.
