What to Expect
Travel reference:

Come with Volcanic Air to explore Rotorua's volcanoes, geothermal reserves and lakes district from both the air and the ground!

There are many options to choose from to see the beautiful Rotorua from above. Join a 8 minute Flight Experience to discover the romance of landing and taking off in a floatplane with panoramic views of Rotorua from above. Great for a first time experience of a floatplane flight! Or upgrade to a 15 minute Crater Lakes Flight, climbing over the eastern ridgeline to enjoy the stunning views of the lakes of Okataina, Tarawera, Okareka, Rotokakahi (Green Lake) and Tikitapu (Blue Lake).

You can also choose a 30 minute Eruption Trail Tour to enjoy the stunning lakes district and aerial views of the Waimangu thermal Valley and its vibrant Inferno Crater and Frying Pan Lake. Alternatively, join a 1 hour 25 minute White Island/Mount Tarawera 'Floatplane Adventure', where you can experience the beauty of the lakes district, the peaks and craters of Mount Tarawera and a flight over New Zealand's only permanently active volcano 'White Island'.

For a more extended tour, there are two more options for you to choose from. The Thermal Explorer is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes in duration, and includes approximately 1 hour touring the Valley of Orakei Korako. On this tour you will experience aerial views of Mount Tarawera and the vibrant Waimangu and Waiotapu geothermal reserves before landing on the "Mighty" Waikato River to explore the hidden thermal valley of Orakei Korako.

Alternatively, you can combine a floatplane flight with a 4WD and hiking experience by Kaitiaki Adventures, where your journey begins with an off road 4WD experience through native New Zealand bush, transporting you to the craters edge. After a 1.5 to 2 hour hike, your 4WD will then drop you at the remote shores of Lake Rerewhakaaitu where you will return to Rotorua by Floatplane. You will then enjoy a spectacular aerial overview of the Waimangu Volcanic Valley, Mount Tarawera and the hidden lakes district.
