Thermal Wonderland & Lake Tarawera

Thermal Wonderland

Start your journey in Tauranga from your pick-up point and enjoy a cross country scenic drive encompassing spectacular views of Rotorua’s only living Maori village, The Thermal wonderland.

Here you can experience a tantalizing tour of an authentic Maori Village, set amidst a landscape of erupting geothermal activity, hot thermal springs and bubbling hot pools. Enjoy a Maori Cultural performance. Learn how a Maori Hangi is prepared by the traditional method incorporating the natural geothermal resources.



Lake Tarawera

The structure of this tour allows you to relax and spend more time absorbing the sights and sensations of Rotorua and The Bay of Plenty. There is no need for you to drive all the way to Rotorua. You will arrive feeling fresh and eager to sample the delights of this Thermal Wonderland. You will have the added bonus of some stunning aerial views of the coastline, beaches, rich farmland, forests and striking volcanic landscape before your arrival in Rotorua. You will return to Tauranga along a scenic route which will give you an opportunity to see some of the local area before your return to your ship.

It is important to get as much as possible out of your trip and this unique tour allows you to see more of the countryside than you would normally see on other flights of this nature.
