Rotorua Scenic Flights by Floatplane
Seeing the world from above is always something special. Seeing Rotorua from above, with its countless lakes, volcanoes and geothermal activity, is a truly otherworldly experience. The geothermal colour palette reaches from blue to green, from red to orange to yellow, white and so much more. Steam rises to the sky not only from hot springs in the lakes and rivers but also straight out of the mountains.
Volcanic Air offers a range of scenic flights with their floatplanes. Take off from Lake Rotorua and fly over the town centre, over the lakes and towards Mount Tarawera.
Experience the romance of landing and taking off in a floatplane with panoramic views of Rotorua from above. Great for a first time experience of flight.
