Flying at a time to suit you, this 30-minute scenic floatplane tour over Mt Tarawera will fit into even the busiest of itineraries. Meet the pilot, who serves as your aerial guide and offers narration on the awesome sights from above.
Feel the thrill of a water take-off before your pilot expertly navigates the skies toward Mt Tarawera, a mountain steeped in Maori legend. You’ll follow a 5-mile (8-km) volcanic rift along the summit of Mt Tarawera — a lunar-like landscape of jagged rocks and myriad crater lakes formed by the 1886 eruption of the now dormant volcano — before heading south to the Steaming Cliffs and hot lakes of the Waimangu Volcanic Valley.
En route back to Rotorua, the seaplane tour takes you over the Blue and Green Lakes and the gurgling geysers of Whakarewareewa Thermal Reserve before splashing down for a water landing on Rotorua Lake.
Flights depart throughout the day from dawn to dusk, so simply advise your preferred departure time when booking.
