Leave the hustle and bustle of Auckland behind and venture on a magical journey through the incredible geothermal regions of Rotorua and Waitomo...
Embark on a journey to discover some of New Zealand’s natural wonders; leaving the hustle and bustle of Auckland city behind, we head straight to Waitomo Caves from Auckland on this Waitomo and Rotorua day trip.
Once in the cave; glide along an underground river on a boat trip before reaching the Glowworm Grotto; an awe-inspiring sight featuring thousands of glowworms.
Allow your eyesight to readjust as your coach tour heads east to the geothermal and cultural hub of New Zealand; Rotorua. As you experience one of the best spa pools Rotorua has to offer, Polynesian Spa, you'll have the opportunity to switch off and soak up the minerals and the views in these naturally heated pools overlooking Lake Rotorua.
After reaching new levels of relaxation, we head to Te Puia to learn about Māori culture in New Zealand; you’ll be welcomed on to the marae (Māori meeting house) in the traditional way before experiencing a Māori cultural performance. You’ll also have the opportunity to see master woodcarvers and weavers at work at the Māori Arts and Crafts Institute.
To conclude your Waitomo and Rotorua day trip, head to Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley; marvel at the most famous of Rotorua geysers - Pohutu geyser - as well as mud pools, as you experience the famous Rotorua geothermal activity!
After Te Puia, your coach tour will return to Auckland in the evening.
