A Day On Tour - Discover Rotorua

04 March 19

Begin your day with a tranquil Gondola ride up Mt Ngongotaha complete with spectacular views overlooking Lake Rotorua, the city and steaming geothermal landscapes.

The 8-seater Gondola cabins give plenty of viewing pleasure along the 900-metre long cableway system. Once on top, enjoy breakfast and the breathtaking views.

Test your skills on the track with some face-paced luge fun, as you wind your way back down the mountain. The world-famous luge attraction opened in 1986 and is popular with people of all ages. 

The next stop is Agrodome where you'll enjoy an hour of action-packed entertainment at the Agrodome Farm Show. Hear amazing facts, meet the locals (sheep), and watch live shearing and herding demonstrations.

The Agrodome is a real working sheep and cattle farm with 1200 sheep and 120 beef cattle. For over 40 years they have given visitors the opportunity to experience farming first hand and learn about the day to day life of many hard working New Zealanders.

Afterwards, combine culture, wildlife and natural wonders at Te Puia. Be surrounded by bubbling mud pools and geyers sending columns of steam bursting into the atmosphere. Rotorua is a geothermal wonderland. 

The architecture tells stories and displays stunning artistry of the Maori people and culture. Appreciate the site of the ancient Te Puia village and marvel at the Marae – a traditional gathering place for Maori tribes. 

This evening, immerse yourself in the Maori culture with a Traditional Maori Hangi and Concert.

Enjoy a traditional performance and feast on delicious food, smoky in flavour and cooked in the ground using the geothermal heat.

The region also boasts breathtaking scenery including 16 beautiful lakes, lush flora and redwood forests - all shaped by the volcanic activity.

See the best of Rotorua on a Grand Pacific Tours Coach Holiday. Two popular North Island itineraries include: 

8 Day Taste of the North Island 

9 Day Northern Spectacular
