Full description
Enjoy plenty of time to discover Wai-O-Tapu on a small group tour from Rotorua. After pick-up from your Rotorua accomodation, travel south through farmland and forests to the amazing Wai-O-Tapu, North Island’s geothermal wonderland. 

Visit Wai-O-Tapu, New Zealand’s most colourful and diverse geothermal sightseeing attraction. Be introduced to a uniquely different natural landscape as clearly defined tracks provide you with the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of the area. There, choose from a series of different walks, ranging from 30 to 75 minutes.

Gain an overview of the area from the lookout point, then set your own pace over marked walking trails as you meander past vividly coloured hot pools, volcanic craters and steaming fissures in the geothermal park. Admire the New Zealand bush along the walkways, where display panels inform you about the thermal activity you see. Consult your complimentary full-colour guide-map for further details about the natural wonders.  There will be an opportunity to enjoy lunch (at own cost) and plenty of photo moments.
