Wai-O-Tapu

In addition to having one of the best names in the history of cool places, the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland is one of the most beautiful volcanic sites you could hope to visit. Wai-O-Tapu means “sacred waters,” and after visiting this stunning landscape, you will understand how it got the name. The Lady Knox Geyser is a particularly spectacular scene, and it erupts every day at exactly 10:15 am.

Redwoods Forest

Commonly referred to simply as The Redwoods, the Whakarewarewa Forest contains over 5,600 hectares of beautiful landscape filled with history, local culture and adventure. Check out the wide array of exotic plants and native trees as you stroll down the miles of walking trails. Or, explore the entire area along the large network of biking paths and enjoy the fresh air and panoramic scenery. Take your time or hurry up; explore The Redwoods at your own pace and at your leisure.

Duck Tours

Take an amphibious adventure and tour the Rotorua area from the viewpoint of the local wildlife. The Duck Tours provide a wonderful guided experience around the lands from a unique perspective. Their knowledgeable tour guides are entertaining and informative and provide great information about this historic area. Their most popular are the Rotorua City and Lakes Tour, Tarawera and http://rotoruaducktours.co.nz/Lakes Tour.
