Rotorua Geyser shore trip

Rotorua Geyser Tour & Te Puia

ADULT NZ$148, CHILD (15 and under) NZ$118
Contact us

Rotorua sits in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, one of the largest and most active volcanic zones in the World. The enormous forces of the Pacific tectonic plate being pushed underneath the Australian plate just a few kilometres below your feet creates the magma that provides the energy to these magnificent geysers, Pohutu (the largest in the southern hemisphere), Te Tohu and the Kereru, and boiling bubbling pools. Add some Maori culture, kiwi birds and kiwi fruit, stunning scenery, lakes and beaches and you have a truly remarkable day.
