Rotorua Team Building Experiences

As one of New Zealand’s top tourist hot-spots, a business or group trip to Rotorua would not be complete without experiencing the available attractions. In between your down time, create a unique Rotorua meeting and conferencing experience with team building activities and fun. If you are in need of a helping hand, our dedicated Meeting and Conferencing experts can help you plan your team activities around your next meeting or conference at Holiday Inn Rotorua.

Rotorua certainly is a mecca for adventurous activities. Whether you’re in Rotorua for a corporate meeting or group conference, there are many ways you can get your heart-rate pumping and foster team building and interaction. 

We are lucky to have the Redwoods (Whakarewarewa Forest) right on our doorstep, with over 160 km of spectacular Mountain Biking trails awaiting to be discovered.  Whether it be a leisurely ride or a bit of physical endurance, mountain biking is the perfect way to spend your downtime during a meeting or conference.

Famed as New Zealand’s geothermal wonderland, home to bubbling mud pools, sulphur fumed air and native forestry, Rotorua is blessed with a spectacular natural landscape. A playground for nature lovers with many eco-tourist attractions on offer, there are many ways you can discover Rotorua’s natural beauty during your next meeting or conference.

We recommend checking out  the Redwoods Treewalk. This is quite possibly one of Rotorua’s coolest ecological attraction, featuring 28 elevated suspension bridges, extending 700 metres in length.

If you are looking for a cultural experience, Rotorua is quite possibly the best destination to immerse yourself in the heart of Maori culture and tradition. Integrating a Maori cultural experience can add a unique dimension to your meeting or conference.
