Getaway Summary

Location: Rotorua, Bay of Plenty
2 nights/3 days
Accommodation in 4* hotel with breakfast
4.5h Mt Tarawera Crater Walk

Towering high over the lake with the same name, Mount Tarawera is impressive from afar as well as from up close.
Back in 1886, the eruption of Mount Tarawera volcano wiped out hundreds of people’s lives, sunk the then-famous Pink and White Terraces and completely re-shaped Rotorua’s landscape.

Mt Tarawera Crater Walk Tour

Today, a guide takes you up the mountain on a bumpy slope. You’ll not only learn heaps about the history of Mt Tarawera, but you’ll also learn what significance the mountain has to the local Māori iwi.

The most fun part about the crater walk is without a doubt the scree run. You run, hop and skip (some tumble and roll) from the summit down a steep, sandy slope, right into the heart of one of the craters. 

Once in the crater, the ‘School of Rock’ teaches you about the volcanic rocks, their weight and the sand and the delicate lichen that grows in the area.

And with some luck, you might even see a wallaby!
