Out and about nearby

Rotorua is located in the heart of the Central Volcanic Plateau and is uniquely built on top of an active geo thermal field. It is also the cultural home of the indigenous Maori people. Twelve major lakes surround the city, with the historic Lake Tarawera lapping at the base of the now dormant Mount Tarawera. In this region you can view twenty-meter high geyser eruptions, vividly coloured lakes, hot springs and boiling mud pools, as well as Maori customs and cultural displays.More immediate to the lakeside setting of Solitaire Lodge, a number of activities are on offer for discerning guests exploring this magical part of New Zealand. Take a hike on Tarawera Falls Hiking Trail to a 200 feet high waterfall, or visit the Tarawera Thermal Springs to take a soak in a spiritual setting. More intrepid guests will enjoy embarking on an adventurous scenic helicopter flight over the surrounding volcanic landscape to Whakaari Island and Mount Tarawera. Landing on an active volcano is not something for the faint-of-heart, but an incredibly rewarding experience for the more fool-hardy. Others will simply enjoy getting out onto the water in search of rainbow trout for dinner on a private fishing excursion, or exploring the tranquil waters in a kayak or a motorised dinghy.With even more on offer, including spectacular cycling trails as well as volcanic 4-wheel-drive adventures to the summit of Mount Tarawera, there really is something for everyone at Solitaire Lodge.
