  • We drove to the lakes that surround Lake Rotorua and Lake Rotoiti was one of them. Nothing spectacular about it but the drive along the wooded road is quite nice.  more »
  • Beautiful scenery in every direction from the edge of this huge lake. Staying in a small bach almost in the waterfront is close to heaven.  more »
  • Stunning view, real beautiful and unspoiled nature, clear water. Consider spend there one or two day for hiking.  more »
