Words cannot express the experience that is flying, over the rugged, unspoiled features of this volcanic island, viewing moon-like surfaces, steaming craters, flocks of seabirds, and sulphur-yellow landscapes. You will see the remains of the old sulphur works, and the highly acidic crater lake. 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.
