Full Description

Experience “Volcanic Extremes” flying over the active crater of “Whakaari” White Island before landing on the now dormant, but extremely spectacular summit, of Mount Tarawera.

Both of these volcanoes are of significance, Whakaari more recently for the devastating 2019 eruption and Mount Tarawera for the much larger 1886 eruption, considered to be the largest in New Zealand’s living memory. Different in the extreme, Whakaari is an active marine volcano and changes its activity on a daily basis, meanwhile far inland Mount Tarawera stands impressively above its central North Island landscape. This mountain is now dormant but is no less impressive: Craters and domes are evidence of the massive eruption that shaped this area. Views from the mountain’s summit are breathtaking, not only for the volcano’s deep craters, but also for commanding vistas of the surrounding region.

Additional aerial views include: Waimangu Volcanic Valley, stunning crater lakes, fertile farming, forestry, horticultural land, and distant national parks. This diversity of scenery is unique to this region, and is steeped in rich culture and fascinating history.
