“Why Lake Rotoma is an ideal destination for a camper van hire holiday with your family”


Enjoy the splendour of a calm & clear lake located right on your doorstep, experience the enjoyment of a sunny day and savour large fresh trout cooked on a barbeque on your next camper van hire holiday around Lake Rotoma. This is the easternmost lake in a series of three lakes sited towards the northeast of Lake Rotorua within New Zealand’s North Island.

Lake Rotoma is among the cleanest lakes within the Rotorua region and is essentially a deep, open lake with crystal clear water. Lake Rotoma was formed due to a major volcanic eruption and is an idyllic breeding ground for the main types of trout in this region namely brown, rainbow and tiger trout.
