The ultimate Rotorua adventure. 😎 Cheers for the awesome review Annie!

“Recently visited Rotorua with Contiki and the Volcanic hike was the highlight of my trip. Our guides were super knowledgeable and made the day really enjoyable. We also did the whitewater rafting and that was incredible too. Highly recommend.”
