Experience breathtaking views as you hike the geothermal grounds of Mt Tarawera

EXPERIENCE BREATHTAKING VIEWS AS YOU HIKE THE GEOTHERMAL GROUNDS OF MT TARAWERA

pin-icon    Roturua, New Zealand

Walk through the crater of many colours.

In 1886 Mount Tarawera erupted, creating furious columns of ash and steam 11 kilometres into the violet sky. Today, it's a sacred Maori site and breathtaking geothermal valley, with six craters of gorgeous techniclour variety. As you hike across the crater rim, you'll be rewarded mountain-crisp air and spectacular volcanic vistas, with gobsmacking views of the pine forests below. After you conquer the summit, you'll reflect on how something so violent has created something so peaceful.
