Rotorua, New Zealand, is home to hot geothermal waters, hailed for healing properties and cures for ailments such as sexual impotence, arthritis and a few other afflictions. There is a range of hot pools available for bathing, from quiet, reserved private pools to natural hot springs. In addition, there are shooting geysers and cultural experiences showcasing the Maori culture.

To get a truly immersive experience, it’s best to start the day at the Mitai Maori Village, home to the indigenous Maori culture. The warriors perform shows in an ancient war canoe while visitors eat a traditionally cooked Hangi meal. This is a fantastic way to add more to the trip and make it more than just a visit to some hot springs. Learn more about the fascinating culture and live the experience of the Maori warriors.
