Rotorua Express Tour with Te Puia & Redwoods Treewalk

  • Coach travel from Auckland
  • Redwoods Treewalk adventure
  • Guided tour of Te Puia
  • Māori culture and history
  • Geothermal activity

Experience New Zealand’s geothermal wonders, authentic Māori culture and go on a forest adventure, all in one exciting day tour from Auckland.

Your day begins with a quick trip through the Kiwi countryside in our comfortable air-conditioned coach, with interesting commentary from your driver guide.

Rotorua is a city full of adventure activities, geothermal features and the home of Māori culture... but your first stop is deep in the heart of the forest.

Rotorua’s Redwoods Treewalk experience is an award-winning eco-tourism forest walk with a difference! Encounter ancient 75-metre-tall redwood trees as you walk across suspension bridges and platforms high in the air. It's the perfect mix of adventure and tranquility. 

After your Treewalk adventure, visit Te Puia for a guided tour of this premium cultural venue. You'll learn about the proud history of the Māori people, see examples of traditional carved meeting houses and a replica pre-European village, and visit the New Zealand Māori Arts & Crafts Institute where modern-day artists work their magic.

Te Puia is home to New Zealand's national icon, the kiwi bird. Step into the kiwi house and (once your eyes adjust to the darkness) see if you can spot this nocturnal, flightless, curious creature. 

During your tour you'll also explore the geothermal valley in which Te Puia is situated. Geysers, fumaroles, boiling pools of mud and other weird and wonderful geothermal features will amaze and delight you.

In the afternoon, it's time to board your coach for the return trip to Auckland.
