Know More about this tour

Take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to land and walk in the crater of New Zealand's most active volcano.

Words cannot express the experience that is walking on the active crater floor of White Island. The unique lunar landscape is an integral part of the Pacific ring of fire. This active volcano is located 52 kilometers off the Bay of Plenty coastline. White Island (or Whakaari as it was named by the Maori before Europeans arrived) is New Zealands most active volcano and was once home to factory workers who mined the Island for sulfur. Ruined remains of this hard life still exist today.

This continuously active volcano, with sulfur-lipped fumaroles, active volcanic vents, steaming Crater Lake, bubbling mud pools, hot streams and desolate mining ruins provides a surreal experience. You will feel like you are walking on a different planet. Tour ends at the original departure location.

  • Great tour. It was my first helicopter ride and although I was nervous I felt safe the entire time. They picked us up right at the port st the prearranged time and then after a short safety instruction we were on our way. It's about a half hour flight to White Island and Dave, our pilot, pointed out points of interest along the way. Very accommodating and very nice people.

  • Had a Great Experience, The pilot was great and a very good tour guide. Well worth the Time and Money....Never been on the moon but it sure felt and looked like it!
