Visit Rotorua with Mighway

Hire a campervan in Rotorua


Nowhere combines adrenalin, relaxation and culture better than the geothermal hotspot of Rotorua. Less than three hours drive from Auckland, bubbling hot pools, geysers and lakes make it seem like a whole world away. Mighway recommends at least 2 days to discover what Rotorua has to offer. Driving to Rotorua from Auckland is a great way to experience the region up close and personal. You'll know you're there by the smell of sulfur, an ever-present feature of Rotorua thanks to the geothermal activity. While you're there, make sure to experience the healing waters for some pampering, as well as the Maori history and culture. There's something for everyone in Rotorua, so don't miss an adventure here.
