Mount Tarawera

Volcanic Air Safaris - Area Information - Mt Tarawera

A major feature of the region and site of the largest eruption in New Zealand's living memory Mount Tarawera erupted in 1886 with loss of 153 lives. This eruption was also responsible for the destruction of the Pink and White Terraces once considered the eight wonder of the world and host to international visitors in the 1800's. Set amidst a myriad of volcano crater lakes and steeped in Maori legend, Mount Tarawera's rugged landscape and its 8 kilometre long rift is a source of wonder to both visitors and locals alike.  Standing on Mount Tarawera offers a privileged view of spectacular craters and domes formed by the eruption.

A true appreciation of the grandeur of this natural feature and surrounding terrain is best obtained from the air.

Volcanic Air offers several options to see this geographical wonder which is best viewed from above and when combined with other flights over or visits to other local geothermal areas the combinations are stunning!
