Witness the powerful forces that have shaped earth with a tour of Whakaari/White Island, New Zealand’s most active volcano. Discover the raw intensity of this untouched natural environment on a fully-guided exploration of the inner crater complex as you become enveloped by the vastness of Mother Nature and an energy like you’ve never felt before. This must-do experience is one you’ll be talking about for years to come.
Fantastic scenery. Very friendly and informative staff. Had no intention of visiting White Island, when we arrived in New Zealand, but so glad we did. One of the highlights of our holiday. Definitely a unique experience!

From start to finish this trip was professionally run but gave us a sense of personal care. Our guide & pilot was wonderfully informative & answered all our questions about the volcano & also the Bay of Plenty.

Great guides and an amazing island. It felt like a once in a lifetime experience. I’d happily go again just to feel like I’m on another planet. The staff were very nice and the packed lunch was great.

Our deaf group visited white island. we didn't have much to expect, but the guide - AMY - was amazing! She knew sign language, which helped our experience immensely and she shared many different tidbits while enroute to the island and back... great adventure overall.
