Join us for a fantastic explorative scenic flight to visit New Zealand's only active marine Volcano - White Island or Whakaari (Maori). Includes approximately one hour guided walk to explore the volcano surface.
Taking off in a helicopter from the waters of Lake Rotorua, we journey over Hells Gate Thermal Park and the Northern Lakes of Rotorua, taking in the stunning scenery and points of interest as we head towards the coast.
After landing, we’ll walk to the edge of an active crater lake, over hot streams, past steaming volcanic vents and colourful sulphur formations, before viewing this privately owned volcano’s long abandoned mining ruins.
This somewhat lunar experience on New Zealand’s only permanently active offshore volcano is breathtaking and when combined with helicopter flights above our lakes district and the Bay of Plenty is a unique and surreal lifetime experience.
Whakaari is a magnificent example of Pacifics 'Ring of Fire' in action, and a scenic highlight not to be missed.
Duration: Approximately 1 hour 10 minutes flying time. Allow up to 3 hours for the whole experience.
