Mt Tarawera the immense crater formed by the very recent 1886 eruption can only be visited
Our famous Rotorua maunga with a view is Mt Tarawera (pictured above) the site of the largest eruption in New Zealand’s living memory. Not only does this historically significant place offer incredible views of the immense craters and domes formed by the 1886 eruption, but you can also see right out to the Pacific Ocean and the smoke rising up from Whakaari White Island, just off the coast of Whakatāne. There are only two ways to get to the summit: either by helicopter tour with Volcanic Air or by 4WD with Kaitiaki Adventures.
