Rotorua Day Tours and Activities

Thanks to its prehistoric landscapes and proud Maori culture, Rotorua is one of the most popular tourist spots on the North Island. It's the kind of scenery you'd expect to find in Jurassic Park, with erupting geysers, steaming springs and bubbling mud pools. The area is consider sacred by Maori and it's home to a living Maori village where you can witness traditions including hangi and the haka. Explore all that Rotoura has to offer with our selection of day tours and activities with live availability and instant booking confirmation.
