Unique Travel Experiences Rotorua: The Heartland of Maori Culture in New Zealand
As your personal travel concierge company, DM Concierge provides a dedicated host to transport you around the sights you wish to see and the activities you wish to experience. Rotorua is renowned for bubbling mud pools, shooting geysers and hot springs which make for a lovely vacation in New Zealand. A wonderland of volcanic landscape with geothermal experiences and unique flora and fauna, Rotorua is truly a magnificent place to visit.
Your Rotorua tour can involve swimming or relaxing in the thermal waters, warming yourself up in a natural lakeside hot pool or even standing under a hot waterfall. There’s really so much to experience with DM Concierge planning your trip. You can also float under the Milky Way in a hot stream and there are luxurious thermal spas. At the Polynesian Spa, you can settle into a peaceful and delicate lakeside setting, enjoying spa therapies and mineral spring hot pools while relishing the marvellous views of Lake Rotorua.
In Kuirau Park, there are free thermal foot pools which warm your feet up while you sit back and relax for a bit. Formed over thousands of years, the Wai-o-tapu Thermal Valley is a wondrous landscape of geothermal vibrance with bright orange and turquoise ‘champagne’ pool, bubbling mud and magnificent volcanic craters. Meanwhile, Hell’s Gate is home to the largest hot waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere and encompasses land coral and geothermally-heated mud where you can soak in the mud pool or enjoy a mud facial.
But if it’s a more unique adventure you are seeking, there is the Luge, a gravity-fuelled adrenalin-rising ride where you race down the side of a mountain in your own four-wheeled cart. DM Concierge can also transport you to the location to go rafting in the Kaituna on the outskirts of Rotorua. There is a waterfall to raft, the 7-meter Tutea Falls which you can enjoy with professional tour providers.
If you are looking for a bird’s eye view, try Velocity Valley where you can bungy jump the ‘Swoop’ dropping 40 metres in the air and because of the wind tunnel, you feel as though you are skydiving. Zip through the wondrous trees and forests of the region with Rotorua Canopy Tours where you can zipline and quench your thirst for a thrilling ride. The Redwoods TreeWalk also offers a lovely stroll of the suspension bridges located in the iconic Redwood Forest. Seeking more thrills out on the water, you can take a jet boat ride across Lake Rotorua with Kawarau Jet and keep that adrenaline pumping while enjoying magnificent views.
Culture is important to Rotorua and Maori culture is significant for the region. At Te Puia, you can gain insight into the history and culture such as legends of the Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley. Enjoy live cultural performances and be in awe of the Maori culture and events which are run often. You can also opt to spend an evening immersed in Maori culture viewing warriors paddling an ancient waka or war canoe and delight yourself with traditionally-cooked Hangi food, all at Mitai Maori Village.
