    I love Rotorua. I have been there several times and think it is a wonderful place. That cruise is pretty spectacular too!

    I love Rotorua! I lived in NZ for 10 yrs and went a few times. Love the sulphur pools, especially the bubbling mud! So cool! Crazy smell too- you always know when you’ve arrived in Rotorua!

    Some great suggestions here! We loved the luge but also visited the Wai-O-Tapu geothermal reserve. It’s one of the less ‘touristy’ places to see examples of thermal activity and we were mesmerised by their giant colourful hot springs. The waters were azure blue, insipid yellows and vivid oranges. Definitely worth checking out if you visit Rotorua!

      I wish I could have more time to visit Rotorua and its surrounds better. I had heard of the giant colourful hot springs, must have been a gorgeous scenery. Thanks for sharing this tip and for stopping by! 🙂
