New Zealand is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire and its central Volcanic Plateau is packed with geo-thermal activity, manifested in erupting geysers, steaming fumaroles, mud pools and hot springs.
From the pier, it’s a one-hour motor coach ride south through the kiwifruit-growing region of Te Puke to the active Hell’s Gate Geo-thermal Reserve.
On a one-hour guided walk, you’ll pass steaming fumaroles, mud pools and hot geo-thermal waters.
Take a 2½-hour sailing trip on Lake Rotoiti—one of the most beautiful of the many lakes in the Rotorua region. On a charter boat, you will sail by Tapuaekura Marae and view this complex that is an integral part of the Maori community who live around the lake.
Cruise past other secluded bays with native bush clad shorelines and holiday cottages. While you are on board, a picnic-style lunch is served along with a selection of beverages. Your hospitable hosts will make your lake cruise memorable.
