Know More about this tour

Set amidst a myriad of volcanic crater lakes and steeped in Maori legend, Mt. Tarawera's lunar-like landscape is an awesome sight that can only be fully appreciated from the air. The 1886 eruption of the now dormant Mt Tarawera created an 8km (5-mile) volcanic rift along the summit of the mountain, forming a spectacular landscape of jagged rocks and volcanic lakes.

Your 30-minute scenic flight from Rotorua will take you soaring over Mt. Tarawera’s crater rift before flying south to the Steaming Cliffs and hot lakes of Waimangu volcanic valley.

Returning to Rotorua you’ll fly over the Blue and green lakes, and the geysers of Whakarewareewa Thermal Reserve before ending your flight with a landing on Rotorua Lake.

Flights depart throughout the day from dawn to dusk, so simply advise your preferred departure time when booking. A minimum of 2 adults is required per booking.
