Steaming Cliffs Kayak Tour on Lake Rotomahana

On this kayak tour by Paddle Board Rotorua, you’ll feel like you’re paddling right into the past where the earth was new and dinosaurs walked about.
You’ll meet your guide at the entrance of Waimangu Valley. They’ll bring you to the shore of Lake Rotomahana, where you’re kitted out with gear and after a short briefing, you’re off exploring. Mt Tarawera has a watchful eye over you as you paddle along the steaming cliffs and bubbling geysers on Lake Rotomahana. 

Waimangu Volcanic Valley self-guided tour

After your tour (or before, if you prefer), you’ll have time to explore Waimangu Volcanic Valley in your own time. Discover the world’s youngest geothermal valley and see what the world could’ve looked like at the time the dinosaurs roamed our planet. Visit the incredibly blue Inferno Crater, Frying Pan Lake and the Warbrick Terraces and round off your day with a drink at the cafe at the entrace.

Secret Spot Rotorua

The not-so-secret-anymore Secret Spot Rotorua is located on the outskirts of the city, next to Whakarewarewa Forest’s mountain bike entrance. Tucked away from the outside world, a peaceful, lush-green sanctuary awaits. 12 cedar hot tubs look into the forest and towards the entrance, you find a licenced cafe with complimentary shinny dips (foot baths) with your drink.

If you feel like a glass of bubbly while sitting in your hot tub, just push the button and one of the friendly staff rocks up to take your order. Enjoy your drinks and snacks while chatting with your party (be it a romantic soak for two or a fun one with the girls), all while gazing into the soothing green of the forest.

You won’t ever want to leave your tub again.
