The answer depends on what kind of adventure you’re looking for. Summer (December to February) is ideal for outdoor activities – think hiking, biking and taking a dip in the crystal-clear lakes. Autumn (March to May) is perfect for sinking into the geothermal pools, while winter (June to August) in Rotorua is especially magical, with snow-capped mountains and steamy springs. Last, but certainly not least, spring (September to November) is a beautiful time to visit as the colour returns to the countryside.

What isn’t there to do in Rotorua?! A thrill-seekers paradise, those looking for the ultimate adrenalin kick can fill their days bungy jumping, white-water rafting, ziplining, mountain biking, luging and zorbing. Those who are seeking relaxation can sink into a therapeutic hot pool or mud bath, while those who are keen to learn about Māori culture can head to Te Puia to witness exploding geysers, carved masterpieces and try traditional hāngī. One thing is for certain, you won’t be bored in Rotorua.
