Experience not one but two of New Zealand’s mighty volcanoes with this incredible 90 minute scenic flight!

Experience not one but two of New Zealand’s mighty volcanoes with this incredible 90 minute scenic flight! Soar high above White Island and Mount Tarawera and gain a birds eye view of these mighty volcanoes.

Departing from Whakatane, we’ll take to the skies and you’ll get to experience amazing views from the get go as we fly over rolling farm land, beautiful white sand beaches and off shore islands.

Keep an eye out for dolphins & large schools of fish that are often seen on our journey as we head towards White Island, also known as Whakaari (The Dramatic Volcano).

Look deep inside the volcano and see the fascinating sulphur vents, bubbling mud and acid lakes. Hear the active volcano roar and hiss as gasses are released from its steaming vents. A mesmerising spectacle that attracts tourists, scientists and volcanologists worldwide.

Next up is a visit to Mount Tarawera, the volcano that produced the country’s largest eruption and destroyed the Pink and White Terraces, once hailed as one of the seven wonders of the world.

Have your camera at the ready as we soar above the volcano and its 25km long crater.

You’ll also get to fly over Waimangu Thermal Valley, Rotorua Lakes District, Mt Putauaki and Matahina Hydroelectric Dam and enjoy full commentary and exceptional service.

Come and enjoy the ultimate volcanic experience and the flight of a lifetime!

Awesome flight !!!!!!!

George was a wonderful pilot and seems to have a lot of flying experience ! He took us over the volcanoes with lots of interesting informations, and always gave me time to translate for my parents. The plane was comfortable and we didn’t have to wait at the beginning. George gave us lots of information about what to do for the next days, and always with a big smile. He is highly recommendable, and the flight lasted 1 hour and 50 minutes, awesome !!!! You need to do this if you are in N.Z. !!

Fantastic Trip - highly recommended

Our flight was amazing over Mt Tarawera & White Island, George our pilot was so knowledgeable and friendly. He helped easy my 88 year old nan's fears with flying in such a small plane and she forgot we were flying as soon as we took off and saw the scenery out the window. The flight was the highlight of our trip around the North Island. Thank you so much White Island Flights
