Board the helicopter, on the Rotorua lakefront, and settle in as your pilot-guide takes off over the stunning crater lakes of the Northern Lakes district. Mt. Tarawera's otherworldly landscape with its 5-mile-long (8-km) rift is a source of wonder to both visitors and locals alike. You’ll appreciate expansive views from the air and a closer look on land during this combined helicopter flight and walking tour.


Hovering above Mt. Tarawera, take in the grandeur of the volcano and its surrounding terrain. The site of the largest eruption in New Zealand's recent memory, with a loss of 153 lives, the volcanic blast covered the village of Te Wairoa and destroyed the Pink and White Terraces — staircases of waterfall pools on the shores of Lake Rotomahana, once considered the eighth wonder of the world and host to many tourists during the 1800s.


Land and explore the volcano on foot with your guide, enjoying a privileged view of its craters and domes formed by the eruption. Hear interesting commentary on the history, culture and geology of Mt. Tarawera, steeped in Maori legend, before returning by helicopter to Rotorua.
