Thermal Rotorura, Gondola, & Sheep Show

Explore a thermal reserve with pools of boiling mud, spouting geysers, silica terraces and steam vents. Your first stop is Te Puia Thermal Reserve, offering a unique combination of Maori cultural and geothermal experiences. Most famous is the Pohutu Geyer, which bursts into life up to 20 times each day, shooting boiling water up to 30 metres skyward. Then take a Gondola up to the Skyline Restaurant where you will enjoy a splendid buffet lunch with a traditional kapa haka show. After lunch, visit the multi-award winning Agrodome Sheep Show, where you will be treated to an exciting and informative insight into New Zealand agriculture. A fantastic overview of all things Kiwi. Tour order may vary.

Special Notes

The journey from the ship to Rotorua is approximately 80 minutes each way. Wear comfortable walking shoes as your walk at the thermal reserve consists of 600 metres of worn walkways. Photography may be restricted within some areas of Te Puia and passengers may be asked to remove their hats during the Maori ceremonies. As with all geothermal regions, the smell of hydrogen sulphide permeates the atmosphere although it is not harmful to breathe. The sequence of the tour may vary.
