Backpacking in Rotorua

Follow Base Blogger Joanna as she explores New Zealand's volcanic backpacker hot spot. Rotorua... quite possibly the strangest place in New Zealand! Rotorua literally sits upon geothermal activity which gives the city much of its appeal as a tourist destination. You will find volcanic crater lakes, erupting geysers, hot mud pools and bubbling pits of steam and volcanic activity scattered throughout the entire city. Take our word for it... Rotorua is like nowhere else on this planet!
