Bay of Plenty & Rotorua

Embedded_map_Bay_of_Plenty.jpg

Known for its sweeping beaches, the Bay of Plenty earns its name well, with the area having a wonderful selection of sights and scenery.

Nearby Rotorua is located in one of the most geothermally active areas of New Zealand with geysers and bubbling mud pools. Don't worry about the smell of rotten eggs - it's only naturally occurring hydrogen sulphide and you soon get used to it!

White Island, one of New Zealand's most active volcanoes, is located 48km out in the Bay of Plenty and currently has an alert rating of 1, meaning that it is constantly active and steaming. You will view hissing fumaroles, spluttering mud pots and pink lava bombs. You will also be able to venture right up to the main crater's edge to peer down into the steaming and bubbling crater lake.
