Pick up your motorhome this morning and head south through the agricultural region of the Waikato. You might like to break up the journey with a visit to the Waitomo Glow-worm Caves. Take in this natural wonder as the glow-worms put on an incredible light show. Continue onto the geothermal region of Rotorua.
Take a gondola ride to the top of Mount Ngongotaha for spectacular views of the area. Rotorua also offers the opportunity to experience and learn about the Maori culture. Evening visits are available to enjoy a feast of cultural storytelling, entertainment and Maori food. After a formal Maori welcome, relax and enjoy a performance that includes beautiful songs, the stirring haka and the traditional dancing.
Be sure to visit Wai-o-Tapu, a thermal wonderland that showcases the varied ways the heat from the earth’s core is escaping. With bubbling mud pools, fizzing ‘champagne’ pool and the daily eruption of Lady Knox geyser, it’s a highlight of the North Island.
