What more could you ask for when on holiday? New Zealand geysers close to Rotorua are an absolute must see experience when travelling around New Zealand. Amazing geysers, thermal pools, spas, massages, Maori traditions and local Hangi’s. Rotorua is one place you should not miss out on when travelling around New Zealand on holiday especially if you are booking a 3-4 week tailormade holiday with Bridge & Wickers that includes both North and South Islands.
The turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident here and Rotorua sits on a fascinating volcanic plateau with one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity. But Rotorua has far more to offer the holidaymaker, the wonderfully warm natural water springs, moonlike hot air and mud spouting geysers … although they are the main attraction to most tourists visiting this somewhat surreal town. There is no other place in the world like it. In fact, there is one geyser in particular called Pohuta that has been rumbling away for over 40,000 years! Enjoy one of the thermal pool experiences and do not miss out on an authentic massage at the Polynesian Spa which was recently voted one of the top day spa resorts in the world. I loved it!
Gothermal – Rotorua – spectacular!
If you have time, pop in and visit the Tudor-style Rotorua ‘Bath House’ which was built in 1908 and was a great symbol of the Government’s ambition at the time to create the largest and most impressive Spa’s in the Southern hemisphere surrounded by a magical garden.
Rotorua is also a main centre for Maori culture. There are plenty of opportunities for the holidaymaker to experience local hospitality and especially a traditional ‘hangi’ if you like your food being cooked in the ground with buried heated rocks. It’s a great place and I look forward to returning even if the smell of the geysers take a day or two to get used to!
