A unique geothermal attraction, Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland in Rotorua offers wonderful views of distinctive landscapes that have been “moulded” over time. While this fascinating site is around 20 minutes by car from the city, those in search of a well placed Rotorua hotel which to base themselves at can consider Millennium Hotel Rotorua. Within easy reach of many of the area’s famous attractions, this hotel in Rotorua is ideal for business travellers too.

Plan a trip to the Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Wonderland where one can embark on one of three trails that take visitors past some truly remarkable sites. The visit can last anywhere from half an hour to 75 minutes and will bring one face to face with geothermal areas, bubbling mud and volcanic craters that are unique. Among the attractions that you will see here is the Champagne Pool, the Mud Pool and the Lady Knox Geyser which reaches heights of up to 20 metres when it erupts each day at 10.15 am. After your visit you can enjoy a relaxed meal and drink at the onsite cafe too.
