Rotorua Flight Experience



Tour Code: 1A

Embark on an extraordinary floatplane adventure in the heart of Rotorua, New Zealand. Beginning with a thrilling takeoff, you’ll be treated to unparalleled views of Lake Rotorua and the city. Mokoia Island takes center stage, and your pilot will provide commentary about the island’s current role as a native bush and bird sanctuary (home to more than 40 pairs of Kiwis!). This protected bird haven is not only a testament to New Zealand’s commitment to conservation but also holds a significant place in Rotorua’s history. Catch a glimpse at some of the other 17 lakes around Rotorua over the ridgeline as your pilot explains Lake Rotorua’s position in a (very) old volcanic caldera.


Your adventure continues as you fly over Sulfur Bay, where 60,000 liters of sulfur naturally pump into the lake every hour, providing a beautiful contrast with the blue waters of Lake Rotorua. Enjoy the geothermal activity from above, take in the streets of Rotorua, and the Government Gardens before your plane begins its gentle descent to land back on the water.


This experience is perfect for a first flight!
