    Explore a thriving center of breathtaking thermal activity and traditional Maori culture during this scenic, full day visit to the historic spa town of Rotorua.


    Head to Te Puke, the world's largest kiwifruit growing region. Stop at the Agrodome to watch the country's best-trained champion rams parade on stage, and a sheep-shearing demonstration. The highly trained sheepdogs will finish the show with a display of sheep mustering.


    Drive past the Rotorua lakefront where you may see a variety of waterfowl as well as several local landmarks before arriving at the Skyline Gondola terminal. Here, you'll embark one of the aerial gondolas for a breathtaking ride up the side of Mount Ngongotaha, enjoying panoramic vistas of Lake Rotorua, the city and surrounding areas. Arriving at the top of the mountain, the Skyline Restaurant with its unparalleled views is where you'll be treated to a buffet lunch while a local Maori "Kapa Haka" group entertains you.


    Visit Te Puia, the home to the internationally renowned spouting Pohutu geyser and boasts silica terraces, pools of boiling mud and dramatic steams vents. Your guide being a Maori is keen to share the fascinating local lore and legends of this wonderful country. A strong sulfur smell, a product of the intense thermal activity, will fill the air. Remember to bring your cameras on this exciting geothermal experience.


    View the reserve's fascinating re-creation of an early Maori village, and also have time to purchase souvenirs in the gift shop, including traditional Maori carvings. At Te Puia's Maori Arts & Crafts Institute, where for the past 45 years visitors have enjoyed this unique journey into the Maori's rich heritage, their mission is all about preserving the ancient skills and rich culture of the Maori. To that end, young people from across New Zealand are selected as apprentices. Here, the students learn skills ranging from carving to weaving, along with creating flax skirts and patterned bodices, and you will see all this at close hand.

    Thermal Lake Jetboat And Hells Gate Experience

    OVERVIEW

    Zip around a geothermally heated lake in a jetboat and get an even closer look at the power and heat below the earth's surface at Hell's Gate. The collapse of a volcanic magma chamber thousands of years ago created a caldera that became Lake Rotorua once it filled with water. As you cruise along the shoreline, you will notice clouds of steam, sulfur in the air and an unusual greenish-blue tint to the water. They are all the result of the geothermal activity that continues today beneath the surface. The entire surrounding region sits within the Pacific Ring of Fire, one of the world's most active geothermal fields. That volcanic activity is even more apparent at Hell's Gate. While walking through this reserve, you will see billowing steam, bubbling pools of warm mud and even a hot waterfall. Hell's Gate is also a spa of sorts, as its nutrient-rich mud baths have natural healing powers.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Explore an exceptionally active geothermal area within the Pacific Ring of Fire.
    • See clouds of geothermal steam rising from Lake Rotorua as you race across it on a jetboat.
    • Walk through a hellish landscape of hissing steam vents and bubbling mud bathes at Hell’s Gate.

    Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of a working dairy farm before visiting New Zealand's largest mainland sanctuary, an oasis for indigenous flora and fauna. The Red Barn farm showcases what rural life was like in this region centuries ago. Days start early, and the work continues pretty much nonstop. Before sitting down to a hearty country-style lunch at the farm, you will watch a demonstration of traditional butter-churning. A drive across the volcanically formed Kaimai Mountains will bring you to Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari. One of the world's longest pest-free fences surrounds the ancient forest that blankets the mountain to keep out invasive species. As you wander along the forest trails, the naturalist guide will point out indigenous species that may include endangered birds, tuatara reptiles and giant wetas, a type of massive insect whose name means "god of ugly things" in the Maori language. You may also climb a tower to observe animals living in the tree canopy.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Visit the working dairy farm Red Barn for a glimpse into rural life centuries ago.
    • Enjoy a hearty farm-to-table lunch at the Red Barn.
    • Walk through an ancient forest that a protective pest-free fence surrounds.
    • Observe indigenous species of flora and fauna that thrive in the sanctuary forest.

    Ngati Makino - The Little Tribe That Could

    OVERVIEW

    Become immersed in the culture of the Ngāti Mākino while visiting this Māori tribe's fortified settlement, known as a pā. As the tribal members show you around their seaside village, you will walk along the defensive ramparts and see how traditional life is embraced. An eel-fishing demonstration will deepen your understanding of the lifestyle as will watching your lunch being prepared to steam-cook in a hāngī, a traditional earthen pit oven. The ingredients are typically wrapped in flax leaves and placed on hot coals in the bottom of the hāngī and left to cook for several hours. Oral storytelling plays a prominent role in Māori life because the Māori didn't have a written language until the first Europeans arrived. As you will discover, storytelling is more than narration; it's an emotionally moving performance that involves dancing, singing, chanting and praying. As a gesture of kinship, you can help plant a native mānuka tree on the tribal grounds.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Gain an understanding of traditional Māori life in a tribal village.
    • Watch demonstrations of eel fishing and cooking.
    • Enjoy lunch cooked in a hāngī earthen pit oven.
    • Listen to Māori storytellers recount ancient legends.
    • Help plant a tree to commemorate the experience.

    Kayak across serene Lake Rotoiti, a sheltered waterway with abundant wildlife and natural geothermal pools along its scenic shoreline. After a briefing on how to get the most out of the adventure, you will ease into a double kayak and paddle off. Lake Rotoiti is wonderfully picturesque, in part because a lowland forest borders much of it. Pohutukawa, known as the Christmas tree for its crimson flowers and greens, also grows there. You can expect to spot wildlife along the way, especially water birds such as black swans. Once you reach the mineral-rich Manupirua hot pools, you will have the opportunity to soak in the soothing waters. The springs are of varying temperatures, so you can surely find one to your liking. You will also paddle through a cave softly illuminated by glow worms. It is quite the natural phenomenon.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Kayak along the shores of Lake Rotoiti, a natural paradise with plenty of wildlife.
    • Relax your muscles by soaking in the mineral-rich hot pools along the lake’s coast.
    • Paddle through a cave illuminated only by glow worms.

    OVERVIEW

    Discover the wonderful world of truffles and enjoy a tasting at a farm that harvests these highly prized fungi. After a panoramic drive through Tauranga, you will head into the country to a truffière or truffle grove. In hopes of growing truffles, the owners planted hundreds of oaks and hazelnuts and inoculated them with the spores of Perigord truffles, as these trees often develop a symbiotic relationship with truffles. As you will discover, their experiment was a success. You will watch the farm dogs sniff out the truffles, which must be carefully extracted from the soil to prevent damage. It is a methodical process that reflects the value of truffles. You will also be treated to a sampling of truffle-infused products such as cheeses, honey and ice cream, all thoughtfully paired with beer or wine. Afterwards, you will drive along the coast in the shadow of the dormant volcano Mount Maunganui.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Tour a truffle farm and learn how the owners encouraged truffles to grow there.
    • Watch trained truffle dogs sniff out the truffles that grow beneath the oaks and hazelnuts.
    • Sample a selection of truffle-infused delicacies paired with local wine or beer.
    • Behold Mount Maunganui, a dormant volcano that is sacred among the Māori.

    HELPFUL HINTS
