Q&A with Paul Button from Rotorua Canopy Tours.

If I could only visit one city in New Zealand it would be…
Wellington, it has a great downtown nestled between a beautiful coastline and the mountains.

Three things I love about the North Island are…
The luscious rain forests, the beautiful warm beaches and how close everything is.

Describe the typical New Zealander in three words…
Laid back & genuine.

My favourite spot to relax is…
The Whakawerarewa forest. Wonderful being surrounded by nature.

NZ’s yummiest icecream can be found at…
Lady Janes in Rotorua

Essential Kiwi lingo to learn…
Sweet as, meaning, ‘everything is all good’.

The best sunny nature walk is…
Tarawera Trail.

My ultimate ‘family day out’ would be…
Ride our mountain bikes in the Whakawerawera forest in the morning and then go to Newdicks surf beach in the afternoon.

If you love adventure you should check out…
Rotorua Canopy Tours, it is NZ’s most authentic NZ experience

When I need a caffeine fix I go to…
Mountain Bike Rotorua, they have a killer café at the biking hub in Rotorua.

For a good view, visit…
From the top of the Nga Tapuwae O Toi walkway, down the road in Whakatane.

My hometown’s best-kept secret is…
We have 16 lakes in the immediate area and there are amazing trails for you to walk or ride around most of them.

I love New Zealand because…
It has every outdoor pursuit you could ever wish for in a such a small country, it is full of amazing places to go and it is easy to get around.
