The Rotorua District is home to 18 stunning lakes, amazing natural landscapes and lush native bush. Our Tarawera and Lakes Eco-Tour will take you from the centre of town into a culturally, ecologically and historically significant area.

Home to ancient Maori tribes our tour route takes you through the Tikitapu scenic reserve visiting 4 lakes and splashing down onto 3. You’ll learn about ancient Maori history, the establishment of tourism in the area, geothermal forces that shaped our land, agriculture, flora and fauna and the list goes on. It is an cultural, ecological and historical eco-tour that is informative, fun and unique!

The eco-tour is a 2-hour extravaganza that has been described as ‘enlightening’ by our guests. You’ll learn a lot and our guides will have you laughing along the way as well.

 

Eco-Tour Highlights:

  • Discover the history of our area with a fun & entertaining fully guided commentary, delving deep into Maori history, geothermal activity, volcanoes, legends and more
  • Splash down onto three different lakes; Lake Okareka, Lake Tikitapu and iconic Lake Tarawera

Customer Reviews

Family, Fun & Stunning Views of the Lakes of Roturua

The entire experience of booking on iSite, boarding the tour, very friendly and child attentive tour operator Sean, my children ages 12 & 9 loved the entire 2 hours and so did my wife and me. Even the safety drill was conducted so well, the children and adults had a short stint at the wheel in the lakes, made them feel really special. The tour operators choice of music was excellent too. Not a moment was wasted on this lovely journey!
