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.

Haere mai ki te Wao Tapu nui ä Tane, Nau mai haere mai.

The history and culture surrounding the Whakarewarewa Forest, the variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, diverse range of exotic tree species, mix of native undergrowth, panoramic views, and proximity to lakes, thermal areas and the city centre have made The Redwoods & Whakarewarewa Forest one of Rotorua’s most spectacular natural assets and one of the city’s greatest treasures.

Over 5600 hectares of forest awaits you to enjoy and explore at your leisure. If you love the outdoors and want to experience nature at its best this area is definitely for you!

The forest is most well known for the network of superb mountain biking and walking tracks and for the magnificent stand of Californian Coast Redwoods. These towering trees, along with numerous other species and the fresh forest air, combine to create an invigorating atmosphere and a truly unique and special environment.
