Travel Tips for Rotorua

White Water Rafting with River Rats

by M0B1US

Many eons ago when I lived in New Zealand, I organised for a group of about 12 of us and we convoyed up to Rotorua for a group package weekend extravaganza of white water rafting with River Rats in April '94...

Our package included a whole day out on the Rangitaiki River (Grade 3-4) and the Kaituna River (Grade 5!) the next day, as well as hostel accommodation for two nights at a hostel I can't quite remember the name of except that it was memorable by having a bar serving its own large thermal pool - all this for a crazy price of NZ$135 back at a time when the pound was worth 3.5 NZD!

Although the packages aren't the same, the rides seem to be...

The two rivers we rafted are very different affairs:

The Rangitaiki is a long and fairly placid affair and excellent for those new to white water rafting. We had tried for the Wairoa, but this is only open for 26 days of the year - so make sure you plan far ahead as this is supposed to be a real cracker and we were disappointed not to go on it!

The other thing about the Rangitaiki is that it can get cold if you choose the equivalent of late autumn as for long periods you are just floating along admiring the scenery...

The Kaituna however was a very different animal! When we went this was rated 5+ out of 5 and It is a fast and furious foam filled 45 min rollercoaster ride including the infamous 'taco', which squashes the ends of the raft together and culminating in plunging over the awesome drop of what is reputedly the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world at 7 metres!!!

Apparently only 1 in 4 rafts make it over OK, we went and clipped the rocks as we went over - tipping us out like so much flotsam and jetsom! Our next boat was successful by submerging from the force of the impact and resurfacing the right way up!

WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO, YEAH BABY!!!

Gondola Ride and Luge

by gaizee

The view from the
gondola was breathtaking, overlooking the lake and mountains. For the daring there is also a luge ride and mountain bike riding down the mountain which looks exciting. You can purchase a Gondola ride or a Gondola and luge ride package. cost of the ride is $30

Corn like you've never had it before

by keeweechic

Join a guide and have various areas explained to you as you walk around. Be sure to try some of the corn cob cooked in the steaming pools, its delicious.

They put it in a plastic bag with a little butter for you but it will take about 25 mins for it to cool long enough to eat it

Devil's Bath Waitapu

by batgirl1001

This is the Devil's Bath in Waitapu.It certainly fits the name because it smells quite bad and only a devil could take it. It is especially stinky and smells quite something else altogether.

Tip: If you are bringing kids here to Waitapu, it's a good idea to keep them on a tight leash. The attractions here have very low fences and there is nothing to stop a naughty kid from falling down and becoming a fixture of the landscape.

But if you are thinking of bringing kids here, the question you have to ask is why...??? There are many more attractions at Rotorua which are interesting and kid-friendly than this.
