The Rotorua Lakes district has one of the most distinctive natural landscapes in the country with the 18 sparkling crater lakes being considered a treasured asset or Taonga to New Zealand and the Te Arawa People. Lush natural landscapes, stunning lakes and unique hot pools make the area a must visit.
Rotorua Duck Tours we will guide you on a spectacular journey through natural landscapes, travelling on land and lake in New Zealand’s only genuine WW2 amphibious landing crafts. The combination of our Ducks and the scenery make this one of the most unique Rotorua sightseeing tours.
The Tarawera and Lakes Eco-Tour takes you on a deeper journey through the Rotorua Lakes District with the highlight being a visit to Lake Tarawera, not only a stunning setting, but home to Mt Tarawera which changed our entire history with its eruption in 1886.
On our journey to Tarawera we firstly visit the stunning Lake Okareka for our first splashdown. A small lakeside community within a bird sanctuary. We discover Tikitapu (Blue Lake) with its incredible colours and natural surrounds. After that we pass our most sacred Lake in the area Rotokakahi, along with the Buried Village of Te Wairoa before engaging in the spectacular view of Mount Tarawera, without a doubt the most stunning view on the journey.
Our guides focus is about entertaining anyone with a highly informative and humorous commentary. Our ability to engage all is legendary.
Rotorua Duck Tours is proud to be associated with the Virtual Race NZ and is offering the domestic and international Grand Prize winners a Tarawera and Lakes Eco-Tour experience for 2 people.
