Lake Okareka Vacation Packages
Lake Okareka is a popular place to head to while you are in Rotorua as a large number of the area’s main attractions are within easy driving distance. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the wonderful Lake Okareka and the ever-popular Lake Tikitapu. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit Lake Rotokakahi and Lake Okataina.
There are many picturesque outdoor attractions here as well so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. Hike around in the Redwoods Whakarewarewa Forest. Whether you are looking to recharge your batteries, take a boat ride or just enjoy the sunlight shining on the water, spend time at Lake Tarawera.
If you're a sports fan, you'll love seeing Lake Okareka favorites, the Bay of Plenty, take to the field in nearby Rotorua International Stadium. On match days follow the river of dark blue and yellow, to the stadium, then after the full-time hooter blows, join fans at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a few post-game beers.
When you’re ready to rest up after a day spent exploring the many charms of Lake Okareka, check in to one of the area’s numerous short and long stay accommodation options. Check out the rooms and rates at the Wai Ora Lakeside Spa Resort, the Solitaire Lodge, Lake Tarawera, or the All Seasons Holiday Park.
