Outdoorsy people, if you haven’t gone glamping yet, what are you waiting for?
Glamping (read: glamourous + camping) is the perfect solution when you’re looking for a place that takes camping to the next level. Glamping sites provide everything you need – including an actual bed – so leave the tent, sleeping bag and cooking gear at home. You’ll be comfortably ensconced in the great outdoors, with native birds for neighbours. You might even hear or spot kiwi hunting for food by the light of the moon.
We welcome you to book directly with our preferred accommodation providers listed within these pages. Alternatively, you're welcome to seek advice and book your Rotorua accommodation through our friendly travel experts at either of our Rotorua i-SITE Visitor Information Centres.
