Tarawera & Lakes Eco-Tour

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 will 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 will learn a lot and your guides will have you laughing along the way as well.
