We walked out of Te Puia across the car park to our helicopter. The lady pilot was so enthusiastic about NZ and she was from the Netherlands. This ride to the top is stunning and not to be missed.

Swum in the lake, fished in the lake, walked to the waterfalls at the lake & went to the hot pools there too. Except for parking availability, this place has it all!

It's amazing to see the damage this volcano has wrought. It's a beautiful area and there are people who will tell you that the eruption damaged all the burial grounds and those that live there will see "spirits" walking in their homes at all hours. Would have liked to have seen that!

If you have time, its a must do, and should be on your bucket list. Mt Tarawera is a volcano that can be climbed, cycled up, tours are provided. It has great views. You will remember your visit to Mt Tarawera. Take good footwear, food, water and a good camera/ video. Its very special up there. I hope you get a good day to do it. Allow time to enjoy this special attraction
