A guided day in Rotorua - excerts as written from the diary of recent clients of Exclusive Travel Group www.exclusivetravelgroup.com.  We think this is an excellent way to spend your day in Rotorua.  But think of all the other things you could do if you stayed for a few more days….

Thrilled to see New Zealand featuring so well in the Lonely Planet’s new 1000-ultimate-sights-book, and even more so to hear that a volcano in our backyard is thought of as one of the world’s top volcanoes.

One of the hottest places on earth, the inside of a volcano.  One of the coolest things to do, fly into the crater of a dormant volcano, walk through the active steaming floor and stand on the rugged, awe-inspiring summit of Mt Tarawera, responsible for New Zealand’s largest historic eruption.  
There are lots of Helitour operators to consider, our preferred choice hands down is Tim and the rest of the team at Helipro, their combination of experienced pilots and excellent local knowledge has led to rave reviews from our guests, time and time again.

No visit to Rotorua is complete without trying to catch one of the trophy sized Rainbow trout that reside in the deep crystal waters of Lake Tarawera.  When it comes to fishing they say that local knowledge is often the factor that separates success from failure, and we believe them. Local guide John Hamill has been helping novice and professional anglers for over 40 years, and loves sharing his passion of fly fishing.  One of our favourite excursions with John includes (of course) an adventurous fishing lesson, but also (and most importantly) a revitalising soak at a nearby hot water beach whilst the skipper cooks your catch in the sands.
