Packing for the Rotorua weather is easy if you come prepared for four seasons, and no, I'm not joking. Read on and you'll see why. Rotorua nestles snugly in the basin of a sunken caldera on the shores of Lake Rotorua - one of the oldest permanent lakes in New Zealand.
We're totally surrounded by hills, but not like the huge ones you find in, say, the likes of Switzerland. Rotorua itself sits about m above sea level. It doesn't feel claustrophobic though. To give you an idea, the Rotorua Marathon course is around the lake so that's over 40km. Because we're enclosed, I have to wonder if that's why the Rotorua weather isn't as extreme as a lot of the other places in New Zealand. Sure it gets windy and extremely wet at times but we don't get cyclones, major floods or snowstorms, etc.
Touch wood for luck. One thing I will stress is that you have to be sun smart in New Zealand because the UV rays are deadly. And that's whether the sun is behind the clouds or not. Visitors, especially from the Northern hemisphere, sometimes wind up in the emergency department because of sunburn. It blisters and turns into weeping, ulcerated sores. Extremely painful and often requiring medication. Talk about spoiling a trip. Nowadays, just being in a car with the sun landing on exposed skin burns like hell.
It even burns through denim. Tip: Covering your lap with a sunshade works to block it. When I went to Europe in I was amazed at how I could go out without a hat and the sun actually felt gentle on my skin. So not the case in NZ. Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen, hats, glasses, long-sleeved light tops etc. Anywhere that skin is exposed to UV rays pretty much needs covering. The tops of the feet are a good place for getting sunburnt as well… ouch.
If you're looking at travelling here around this time of year include warm clothing and I mean warm. It's best to have lots of layers as you can be stripping on and off at different times. Mind you, that can happen in summer as well. I'm a wuss when it comes to the cold anyway but when my four big, burly brothers are throwing on layers I know that it's cold for everyone else as well. Winter is freezing full-stop. When the days are fine it can be invigorating and crisp but when overcast, it's bitter.
