  • Views of crater lakes, Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley and Pohutu Geyser
  • Spend a relaxing 90 minutes soaking in the Rotoiti hot pools

Take in all the wonders of Rotorua's lake district and geothermal valley during a magical seaplane flight, before landing on Lake Rotoiti. Head to the hidden hot pools that are situated on the shores of the lake, and spend 90 minutes indulging in complete relaxation.

What's Included?

  • 15 minute scenic floatplane flight
  • Qualified and knowledgeable pilot
  • Landing on Lake Rotoiti with access to the hot pools
  • 90 minutes spent at the hot pools

Enjoy the thrill of taking off from the Rotorua City Lakefront, before being whisked away over Mokoia Island to discover the stunning hidden lakes district. Climb eastbound and witness a cluster of beautiful multi-coloured lakes including Okataina, Tarawera, Okareka, Rotokakahi (Green Lake) and Tikitapu (Blue Lake). Tucked away amongst native forests and farmlands, the best way to take in their beauty is from above.

You'll then head to Lake Rotoiti, where you'll experience a magnificent landing on the lake, before being transferred to one of the local's best kept secrets. Only accessible by water, the hot pools are in a secluded bay on the shores of Lake Rotoiti and will have you feeling world's away from civilisation. Spend 90 minutes at this lakeside oasis with the only thing on your agenda being relaxing, before returning to the lakefront for the flight home. Fly over the Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley, Pohutu Geyser then across the Rotorua City, ending with a lake landing.
