Lake Aniwhenua is off the beaten track for most travellers. You wouldn't, probably, go there if you weren't on a tour. It's a little secret off the road between Rotorua and Taupo.
You will stay overnight at a lodge over looking Lake Aniwhenua. The lodge is operated by a local maori family. You will be welcomed traditionally to stay here and have the opportunity to experience some Maori cultural activities like flax weavining, eeling and traditional maori cookery. You can also just soak up the tranquil surroundings.
