A must do!

This walk was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever done. We had a perfect day. It was a bit cloudy at the beginning but then the sun came and we could see unique landscapes. Our tour guide Dan was amazing! He knew a lot and told us all the history of this place. He also showed us the different types of rocks you could find there and ALWAYS checking on us (He was also really patient because we stopped a lot to take pictures haha). A must do if you’re around Rotorua. I definitely recommend doing this. I can’t wait to come back :)

Tarawera

We couldn’t have asked for a better day or more friendly hosts in Frank & Dan. They kept us informed of geological & historical events as well as keeping us safe. The climb was reasonably challenging at time but nicely so. Thanks guys.
