Located within Rotorua’s Redwood Forest, which attracts more than 500,000 visitors annually, the Redwood Treewalk is the world’s longest suspended walkway. The walk, consisting of 23 elevated swing bridges and living platforms, showcases one of Rotorua’s most visited natural attractions.

In December, New Zealand’s Redwoods Treewalk launched Redwoods Nightlights – an iconic nocturnal tourism experience. The nighttime adventure offers visitors the opportunity to explore more than half a kilometer of Rotorua’s majestic Redwood Forest under the shroud of darkness. The 115-year-old redwood trees and their ferns are illuminated by 2.5m-tall, custom-made lanterns that embrace the natural beauty of the forest and provide a dramatic contrast.

The retail price for the Redwoods Nightlights experience is $25 NZD (approx. $24 CAD) for adults and $15 NZD (approx. $14.25 CAD) for children. It can also be purchased as part of a special day and night combo pass that is $35 NZD (approx. $33.50 CAD) for adults and $22 NZD (approx. $21 CAD) for children.

Any season is a great time to visit New Zealand. There’s a wide range of places to stay, from luxury to laid back, and getting around is a breeze by car, campervan, bus or plane. Head north to peer into Hobbit holes or kayak in the Bay of Islands. Travel south to jet boat the Shotover River, walk the Milford Track, or cycle the Central Otago Rail Trail. To savour your holiday, sip silken Pinot Noir among the vines, taste juicy Bluff oysters, or feast on traditional Maori hangi. Kiwis love making people feel at home, so you’re sure to leave feeling like one of the family.
