TAUPO AND ROTORUA

The Central North Island sits on a volcanic plateau and is iconic for its crystal clear lakes, bubbling mud pools, geysers and snow-capped mountains.

Rotorua has a historical rich Maori culture, hot springs, 18 lakes and various boiling mud pools. The town and surrounding region offers a mix of natural attractions and heritage. From crystal-clear streams and magical forests, to epic biking trails and explosive geysers. There are a raft of attractions and experiences for everyone from adventure-seekers to those just looking to unwind. It is a fisherman’s dream with trophy trout to be had year-round. Just five minutes from downtown Rotorua, Whakarewarewa Forest, known to locals as ‘The Redwoods’, is a perfect playground for walkers, hikers, horse riders and mountain bikers.

Lake Taupo was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption so big it darkened the skies in Europe and China. What remains is the largest fresh water lake in the Southern Hemisphere, almost the size of Singapore. In the distance you will see there are three active volcanic mountains of Mount Tongariro, Mount Ngauruhoe, and Mount Ruapehu in the south. Mount Ruapehu is the tallest of the three and has two popular ski fields Whakapapa and Turoa.
