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.
