Words cannot express the experience that is flying, landing and walking in the active crater floor of White Island. The unique lunar landscape is an integral part of the Pacific ring of fire. This steaming beauty is located 52 kilometers off the Bay of Plenty coastline. White Island (or Whakaari as it was named by the Maori before Europeans arrived) is New Zealand’s most active volcanoes and was once home to factory workers who mined the Island for sulphur. This continuously active volcano, with sulphur-lipped fumaroles, active volcanic vents, steaming Crater Lake, bubbling mud pools, hot streams and desolate mining ruins combined create a surreal experience. You will feel like you are walking on a different planet.
