Mount Tarawera/Waimangu Thermal Valley – “Eruption Trail Tour’ – 3A
From $310 per person
Departing our city lakefront pier experience the thrill of a floatplane take off before climbing above Mokoia Island on track to our hidden lakes district and the Volcanic Peaks of Mount Tarawera.
At 3680 feet in elevation this majestic volcano dominates the surrounding landscape and plays centre piece to the stunning lakes which surrounds it.
Above Tarawera views of cavernous craters reveal the power of what was the largest eruption in New Zealand’s living memory.
The 1886 eruption devastated the local area including our famous Pink and White Terraces once claimed as the eighth wonder of the world. Included in the flight is our stunning lakes district and aerial views of the Waimangu thermal Valley and its vibrant Inferno Crater and Frying Pan Lake.
Returning to Rotorua our descent takes us past the Whakarewarewa thermal reserve and over the city before landing on Lake Rotorua.
