Rotorua Sights: Te Puia, Rainbow Springs & Agroventures Tour ROT-ROT GS39A (0725-1215)

Discover three iconic Rotorua visitor attractions on a GreatSights morning sightseeing tour.

Experience Maori culture at Te Puia, seeing how ancient art forms are being passed on by master artists at their woodcarving and weaving schools. Then take a tour through a thermal valley full of forceful geysers and bubbling mud pools.

Explore Rainbow Springs Nature Park, where you can get up close to all kinds of native flora and fauna, including the famous kiwi, a flightless native bird. Then prepare for thrills at the Agroventures Adventure Park, New Zealand's one and only ultimate adventure playground. Your tour includes the choice of two activities and there's something for everyone!

Shweeb is the world's only human-powered monorail racetrack; Agrojet lets you try the fastest and only jet sprint experience in NZ; on the Swoop you'll swing from 40m towards the earth at 130kph; or have a go at Freefall Xtreme - the Southern Hemisphere's only outdoor wind tunnel. Set against the idyllic backdrop of Paradise Valley, you'll have an extraordinary adventure at Agroventures.
