Seaplane Adventure from Rotorua to Mount Tarawera

Start your journey from the scenic Rotorua City Lakefront, greeted by the friendly English-speaking pilot. Hop aboard the seaplane, and as you ascend, watch the beautiful cityscape shrink, replaced by expansive views of shimmering lakes and lush forests. Behold the mighty Mount Tarawera, a sleeping giant scarred by its volcanic eruption in 1886. As you glide over, marvel at the 8km long rift, a striking blend of red, brown, and orange volcanic residues that paint a vivid geological masterpiece.

Fly Over to Hidden Geothermal Marvels

Post the Tarawera fly-by, your journey transforms into a surreal spectacle as you soar over Orakei Korako Valley, a geological wonderland. Known as The Hidden Valley, it flaunts hot springs, geothermal parks, unique silica terraces, formed over centuries by mineral-rich waters, and the abundant heat-loving algae that paint a vibrant palette across the valley. Catch a glimpse of the expansive Emerald Terrace, one of New Zealand's largest from your aerial vantage point before descending for a closer look. Finally, embark on an interpretive walk with your knowledgeable guide/pilot, unveiling the enchanting Maori lore tied to these lands.
