Rotorua is one of the tourism hot spots of New Zealand. We had a blast taking in Maori Culture, hot springs, geysers, nature hikes, goofy adventure activities and more. We never acclimated to the sulfurous smell from the geothermal activity, but we were there long enough for a grand time.

Whitewater jet boating is a rush with its 180 degree turns at full throttle, but nothing will ever compare to WHITEWATER SLEDGING Class 4 rapids without a raft. The experienced, friendly staff I encountered at each place is the reason I return to New Zealand. It is second to none.

Rich Maori culture, bizarre geothermal activity, and zany sports abound in the touristy adventure capitol of New Zealand's North Island, but beware . . . strong sulphur smells permeate throughout the region and just might chase you away.

Rotorua is about a two and a half hour drive from Auckland, and it's rich cultural heritage, combined with heaps of physical activities, makes it a great place for a weekend getaway, or to experience first-hand some unique Maori culture.
