Overview

Unexpected sights and magnificent scenery await those that venture on this full day scenic boat cruise and guided waterfall walk. Take in the stunning panoramas of Lake and Mount Tarawera and enjoy your captain’s informative commentary on the 1886 Mount Tarawera eruption and the area’s volcanic past as we make our way down to the Tarawera Outlet, the starting point of our Tarawera Waterfall walk. Soaked with incredible beauty, the walk follows the path of an ancient lava flow through a lush New Zealand rainforest in sight of the crystal clear Tarawera River. See the surging river unexpectedly disappearing underground into subterranean chambers before finally blasting out a sheer cliff face 30m high creating the spectacular Tarawera Falls. The return journey to Rotorua on the Lake Tarawera Boat Cruise & Waterfall Walk is via some of the regions most scenic lakes and a walk in a magnificent rainforest completes this fascinating day of beauty and tranquillity.

About 3 hours or 5.5 kms of walking is done, so a reasonable fitness level is required.
