Floatplane Lakeside Picnic Getaway



Tour Code: 7C

Celebrate a special occasion or simply spend time with the people that you love with a lakeside picnic getaway! Combining the thrill of a floatplane flight with a private beach picnic, this is sure to be a day to remember.


Fly from our Rotorua Lakefront to a secluded beach paradise where you can relax on the edge of one of our beautiful northern lakes, Lake Rotoiti. After landing, your pilot will taxi you to the beach and discreetly leave you to enjoy these stunning surroundings. Go for a swim, try your hand at fishing, or simply sit back and enjoy the sunshine for 70 minutes. This is the perfect way to set the scene for a special occasion, a romantic occasion, or simply to bring your family or friends together. 


When the time is up, your pilot will help you pack up and board the plane. Flying back over Lake Rotoiti, the Ohau Channel, Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island, take in the unparalleled views of the Rotorua Lakes District, Mount Tarawera, Sulfur Bay, Mt Ngongotaha and Rotorua City.
