Take to the skies and fly from Treetops to land on New Zealand's only active marine volcano, White Island then explore the unique volcanic landscape on foot with a guided walk.
New Zealand herald travel writer, Annemarie Quill, described staying at Treetops as "paradise for the soul" and, nestled into the wilderness of 2,500 of pristine New Zealand wilderness, that's just what you'll find. Explore our estate, be welcomed by warm-hearted people and share in our estate-to-plate dining ethos.
The whine of turbines breaks the quiet as your helicopter arrives at the Treetops helipad. Flying out over the expanse of the estate, you will get a unique perspective of its true majesty. Once airborne, you will head East and out over the sea to arrive at White Island, New Zealand's only permanently active marine volcano.
Stepping out of the helicopter in hard hats, the adventure unfolds. You are walking on an active volcano. You will be guided on an exploration of active vents, hot streams and the ruins of an abandoned sulfur mine before reaching the active crater lake.
A Wilderness to White Island experience can be added to any stay at Treetops Lodge & Estate and advanced booking is recommended.
Flights to White Island can be booked as an exclusive, private experience or as part of a group.
