Helicopter options include landing on two of New Zealand's most iconic volcanoes, White Island and Mount Tarawera. White Island is our only permanently active volcano and walking around the active crater floor on an almost lunar like landscape is a once in a lifetime experience. In contrast landing on the summit of Mount Tarawera is awe inspiring. This is the site of the largest eruption in New Zealand's living memory and standing on the summit commands stunning views of the volcanoes massive craters and the surrounding lakes district and national parks. 

Floatplane tours offer the romance of taking off and landing from various lake sites and flying over the regions unique volcanic landscape. Popular is our Mount Tarawera / Waimangu Volcanic Valley flyover, however for the more adventurous landings by floatplane at the hidden valley of Orakei Korako and exploring the valleys geothermal activity offers a unique over view of our lakes district, volcanoes and geothermal playground. 

We invite you to step on board with Volcanic Air and create memories that will stay for a lifetime!
