The sulphur city of Rotorua, over 200 km south of Auckland, is known for its geothermal wonders, lakes and authentic Maori Experiences.

On this tour we travel via New Zealand’s famous Thermal Explorer Highway touring route taking in the special region of Rotorua. Our very experienced and knowledgeable local Host-Guides will tell you about New Zealand and its extraordinary places you’ll see along the approximately 3 hour journey to the Sulphur City of Rotorua - one of New Zealand’s ‘hot spots’ and most visited tourism destinations.

On the way to Rotorua, we drive through some truly beautiful countryside and can incorporate a tour of the Hobbiton Movie Set into this tour as an optional extra. As we approach our destination, if time permits, the Mamaku Blueberry Farm is worth a stop. Here we can have a break at the lovely café to see some real Kiwi ingenuity at work on this Blueberry Farm and Winery.
