This park was quite near to where I was staying in Rotorua and I enjoyed a few pleasant walks around here. I could never quite get over how surreal it was to see boiling water and mud bubbling through the earth and creating large clouds of steam. It is really fun to walk through this park and see all the different types of holes and craters boiling away and creating a pong!

Very enjoyable walk. Started at a somewhere near Loughrigg, I cant remember where exactly but you walk alongside a river where you can park your car. The start of the walk was up hill but not too steep and then you gradually make your way up to the top. I didn't find it too strenuous but then my partner usually has me doing much more challenging hill walks. The view from the top is beautiful and you get a good look out over Grasmere lake. From here you can walk down to the lake and I would recommend walking around it clockwise. Along the way you will come to a sweet little tea shop called the Faery Garden which sells hundreds of types of teas, has a gypsy wagon parked out front and you can rent rowboats. You can then follow the footpath into Grasmere and then walk along the roadside until your at the start of where you joined the lake path. From here you can take an alternative less steep route back to Loughrigg and pass by two interesting caverns.

Really enjoyed visiting Castlerigg. You have to drive up a little lane to the top of the hill to get to it, and once parked up you walk through to get to the stone circles. The view from up here is breathtakingly beautiful and even better on a non-busy day when the stillness of the area and the stone circles give off a somewhat eerie vibe. Well worth the visit up here.

A friend recommended we go to Glenbow while we had some time to kill in Calgary and it happened that we were able to visit on one of the free evenings they do once in a while. You will have to check their website to find out when they are. We really enjoyed this museum as it was a mixture of excellent Historical Canadian exhibits and artworks by Canadian artists. Our favourite was the model of the Tipi which we were able to sit in.

The falls are absolutely huge! The Horseshoe being the main and largest of them. The noise, speed and sheer force of it is phenomenal and is a true natural spectacle. You can walk along the designated area right to the start of where the water cascades over the edge which is quite mesmerizing to look at. There is a light show that illuminates the falls at night, which like everything else in Niagara Falls is tacky, but pretty none the less. I would recommend the maid of the mist tour out on the boat for some good photographs.
