Day 5: Whangarei to Rotorua

Today, you’ll travel southwards towards Rotorua, the cultural and geothermal centre of New Zealand.

Stopping in Waikato en route, you'll visit an underground labyrinth of caves where you'll be able to spot New Zealand's iconic glowworms.

Your next stop is Rotorua, which you will most likely smell before you see!

In the evening you might like to soak in the Polynesian Spa on the shores of Lake Rotorua.
