Your local guide to Rotorua

Famous for smelling like egg, Rotorua’s reputation precedes itself but everyone who visits always looks beyond the smell to appreciate Rotorua as one cool destination in New Zealand. Rotorua is a place of two extremes, you challenge yourself further than ever before with the adventure and adrenaline sports on offer and then channel your inner goddess by cleansing the soul and skin in either geothermal pools or natural mud pools.
