Take to the skies and explore the breathtaking Mt Tarawera and the surrounding Geothermal Valley. Be stunned as you view vast volcanic riffs and hidden lakes, before touching down in a geothermal wonderland. Explore Orakei Korako Park at your leisure, experiencing hot springs and gushing geysers.
Experience the sight of the largest volcanic eruption in New Zealand's living memory during this magical floatplane tour. Enjoy the thrill of taking off from the Rotorua City Lakefront, before being whisked away over the hidden lakes district to the magnificent Mt Tarawera. Standing a sheer 3680 feet in elevation, this majestic volcano is a dazzling sight to see, characterised by spectacular craters and domes formed by the 1886 eruption. Then, continue south and witness the 'Sisters of Fire', where volcanic activity has pieced the Earth's surface across the fault-line, forming the colourful reserves of Waimangu and Wai-O-Tapu.
Your pilot will then descend to follow the Waikato River to the hidden valley of Orakei Korako before landing on the water. Enjoy a ferry ride across the river to begin your land based tour of Orakei Korako Geothermal Park. Here, experience hot springs, gushing geysers and the stunning natural beauty of this geothermal paradise. On the return flight home, fly over verdant farmland and the Paeroa mountain range.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
