Rotorua: A Backpacker’s Playground

If you are an adventure freak, Rotorua on New Zealand’s North Island should be at the top of your wish list, as reported in an article in The Indian Express. Rotorua is home to activities like the “Luge, OGO (Outdoor Gravity Orb) or the Agroventure, as well as the highest commercially-rafted waterfall in the world.”

“Rotorua is the lifestyle destination of choice for professional couples, families and people who have a passion for life and the outdoors. It is like a playground in New Zealand and attracts millions of visitors year after year.”

Skyline Rotorua, a high point of the place, is “a must-visit to feel an adrenaline rush.” There you can “ride down one of Skyline’s Luge tracks” or try out the three-seated Skyswing.

“As a place, Rotorua offers an amalgamation of natural beauty with forests, lakes and geothermal activity. It also throws up a chance to sample traditional Maori culture — making it a wholesome experience as a tourist in North Island,” according to the article.
