4 Day Rotorua Discovery
See the Glow Worm Grotto, discover flora and fauna and immerse yourself in local culture at a Maori Hangi and concert in Rotorua.
First Day Arrive in Auckland to Rotorua
(Flights to arrive day prior.) Travel through the lush farmland of the Waikato and King Country regions. Enjoy a morning snack as you drive past Rangiriri, the location of an historic Maori Land Wars site. On arrival in the small town of Waitomo, tour with a local Guide through the world-famous Waitomo Glow Worm Caves with their amazing stalactites, stalagmites and other limestone formations. Finish with a silent boat ride through the Glow Worm Grotto - a subterranean cavern lit by thousands of tiny glow worms. Later, travel on to Rotorua, the cultural centre of New Zealand.
Second Day enjoy Rotorua Sightseeing
Enjoy a morning sightseeing tour around three of Rotorua's iconic visitor attractions. Experience Te Puia, a place of Maori culture and a thermal wonderland of impressive geysers and boiling mud pools. Explore Rainbow Springs Nature Park, which showcases native flora and fauna. You may even spot a kiwi! Then see New Zealand's agricultural industry in action with a sheep shearing display and sheep dog trials at the Agrodome Sheep Show. Tonight enjoy a unique Maori Hangi dinner and concert on a local Marae.
