It seems there is an abundance to do in Rotorua. We will be there for 3 nights and have planned the following:
Day 1: drive from Auckland to Rotorua; plan to go to Polynesian Spa in late afternoon
Day 2: tour with helicoptor to Mt. Tarawera in morning and plan to book a Maori cultural experience in evening...suggestions welcomed!
Day 3: tour of geothermal area in morning
My question is Lake Taupo something we should consider doing in the afternoon of day 3? I am reading that it is an approx. 1 hour drive from Rotorua. My husband and I enjoy scenic drives and scenic destinations. Is this one worth it considering our itinerary?
