World-famous for a reason, Skyline Rotorua is your ticket to an unforgettable holiday.

Catering for all types of visitors – from adrenalin junkies through to leisure seekers, there is an abundance of activities to ensure your day is extraordinary.
Make sure your camera is fully charged before boarding an eight-seater Gondola for a tranquil ride up Rotorua’s iconic Mount Ngongotaha. Overlooking Lake Rotorua, you’ll experience spectacular views of the lake, the city of Rotorua and the steaming geothermal wonders that abound throughout the area.
No need to muck around if you want to get your adrenalin pumping; jump aboard the Luge. The part go-cart, part toboggan is gravity-fuelled with full rider control over speed and direction using a unique braking and steering system.

The Luge is great for any age (our oldest rider is 101) and small children can ride with adults. Choose between the sweeping bends of the scenic track as it meanders through a Redwood Forest or, for the more adventurous, try the intermediate or advanced tracks. From the bottom, jump aboard the chairlift and do it all again – once is never enough!



This Award-winning, eco-tourism walk is 700 metres long, spans across 28 suspension bridges, 27 platforms and takes about 40 minutes to complete. With the height of the walkway ranging between 9 and 20 metres, you are presented with a unique, bird’s eye perspective of the forest below and treetops above.

Regarded by many as one of the best walks in Rotorua.

Redwoods Nightlights is one of New Zealand’s top design led tourism experiences that features 30 exquisite lanterns designed by world-renowned designer and sustainability champion David Trubridge.
