  1. Traditional farm visit ORGo to the top of the volcano at the Skyline gondolas

When in Rotorua you will have the choice of one of two activities. Either take a tour of the lake and visit a traditional farm (where you can have a go at shearing a sheep!), or take the Skyline gondola to the top of the volcano. From there you will have an amazing view of the town and the wider area.

A minibus will take you back to Auckland at the end of this excellent tour.

Options

When making your booking you will be asked to choose one of the following options:

  • Guided tour & Traditional farm visit: In addition to the guided tour visit a real New Zealand farm (approx. 45 mins). Just like a real farmer you can help with the shearing and feed the animals. You can also go for a walk along the shore of Lake Rotorua where you can see many ducks and swans.
  • Guided Tour & Skyline Gondola: In addition to the guided tour, take a ride in a Skyline gondola. Climbing over 480 metres above sea level, this is a great way to enjoy the extraordinary scenery! From the top of Mt Ngongotaha you get a great view of the town and the surrounding region.
