Wildlife safari with cultural element
A 4WD safari is the latest product offering from Rotorua’s award-winning TREETOPS ESTATE LODGE & WILDRENESS EXPERIENCE.
Led by an expert 4WD driver/guide, guests on the new Treetops 4WD Safari Experience are taken on an exploration of the 2500 acre estate, which features 800-year old forests, deep hidden valleys and spectacular views of Mt Tarawera, to make close photographic contact with the estate’s wildlife.
Tailored adventure top option
An ‘exclusive rates’ pricelist is a newly launched innovation from MULTI-DAY ADVENTURES (MDA) targeting those looking for a tailored adventure.
The published ‘exclusive rate’ options include MDA’s more popular adventures in an easy-to-use format ideal for on-selling agents. It provides a quality experience to guests keen on choosing their own departure times, dictating the pace of the adventure and other variables.
View from tree canopy
Believed to a New Zealand first, the Mamaku Rainforest Treetops Walk opened on December 22, 2007.
The latest in a long line of major redevelopment projects undertaken at PARADISE VALLEY SPRINGS in the past 30 years, the ‘aerial walk’ is an elevated solid walkway high up in the tree canopy. Passing through magnificent mature New Zealand rainforest, the walk showcases native specimens that are hundreds of years old and thought to pre-date European settlement.
Encapsulating spirit of Rotorua
Wairua means spirit in Maori so it’s fitting that the newly created WAI RUA ROTORUA full day package encompasses the spirit of Rotorua.
Put together by Hells Gate - Wai Ora Spa and Mokoia Island - Wai Ora Experience (who now operate under one banner), the combo package brings together many of the things that visitors love about Rotorua - Maori customs, geothermal activity, steaming waters, natural surroundings and a mystical island set on a beautiful lake.
Dream on wheels
For many people Harley Davidson motorcycles conjure up a special feeling; they of dream of owning or at least riding one before they die. Torrey and Kerri
Houghton are among the fortunate ones who own Harleys - and what’s more they are willing to share their passion – and bikes – with others.
Torrey has had a lifetime love affair with motorcycles, particularly Harley Davidsons, while Kerri’s interest was sparked the day her new boyfriend (now husband Torrey) arrived to pick her up on a Harley. The couple launched WILD AND FREE HARLEY TOURS in March 2008, and aim to share the sights, sounds and smells of Rotorua from the back of Harley Davidson motorcycles.
