Take our highly rated day excursion to Rotorua - the heartland of New Zealand’s geothermal activity and Maori culture.
After pick up from Port, we tour downtown Mount Maunganui, New Zealand's most popular holiday beach town, take a short walk out to Moturiki Island, visit a working Kiwi Fruit Orchard, and pass through orchards, lush dairy farms, pine forests and lakes as we make our way to Rotorua.
We visit Kuirau Park where you will experience and see boiling mud pools, natural hot springs and steam vents, a Maori Marae, the Blue and Green Lakes, and the Buried Village of Te Wairoa which was destroyed in 1886 when Mount Tararewa erupted.
We visit the enchanting Redwood Forest, Rotorua’s Lakefront and highlights, Government Gardens and the historical architectural gem of the Elizabethan Spa Bath House. We stop for delicious lunch at a delightful cafe (own cost).
We complete our tour by returning to Port via the Old Scenic Rotorua to Tauranga State Highway passing through Tauranga City, over the Harbour Bridge to your waiting ship on time on board well before sailing away.
Please Note: We do not see geysers on this tour ... check our Rotorua Te Puia Geothermal Tour for all the amazing Geyers and Hot Spots.
