Recently visited Rotorua with Contiki and the Volcanic hike was the highlight of my trip. Our guides were super knowledgeable and made the day really enjoyable. We also did the whitewater rafting and that was incredible too. Highly recommend.

Incredible experience for school groups!
Jul 2021
This was a fantastic team building activity for our students visiting on a school trip from Te Wai Pounamu. The mountain is so different to anything we have in the South Island so both getting to the top and running down the scree were highlights for us.
Jackie has some skills at 4WD a bus up the maunga and Harry even accompanied one from our group (down the asile) to get everyone back safely. We had such a great experience that will stay with us, we highly recommend this, especially to other kura.

A must do in Rotorua
Aug 2021
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole adventure. We had a great knowledgeable guide (Nui)
and an excellent driver (Frank). We had an amazing sunny day for early August. Up on a 4wd through the forest up to the mountain ridge. . Walk around the ridge, down on scree slopes (which was fun). The views every way were absolutely stunning. Lots of photos. A must to do in Rotorua.

Very friendly and informative guides. A visually stunning experience. The guides are very flexible in terms of providing an adventure suitable for all ages- I am 82 and had a great time accompanied by a guide while my family and others completed the more challenging part of the hike with another guide.

A must do!
This walk was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever done. We had a perfect day. It was a bit cloudy at the beginning but then the sun came out and we could see unique landscapes. Our tour guide Dan was amazing! He knew a lot and told us all the history of this place. He also showed us the different types of rocks you could find there and he was ALWAYS checking on us (He was also really patient because we stopped a lot to take pictures haha). A must do if you’re around Rotorua. I definitely recommend doing this. I can’t wait to come back :)

Mt. Tarawera - fabulous!
Apr 2021
This is a brilliant trip to do in good weather - amazing views of the line of volcanoes, from Mt Ruapehu to the south and north to White Island. The walk around the crater rim is spectacular - reasonably strenuous but plenty of time for rest and photo stops. Jogging down the scree into the crater is great fun!
Excellent, well-informed guides with a very interesting commentary on the history of the mountain and the ongoing restoration by the local Iwi in partnership with DOC.
