Tarawera & Lakes Duck Tour in Rotorua New Zealand

Discover Rotorua and its Lakes Region

Discover Rotorua and its Lakes Region

The scenery, the history and - of course, the duck - make this Tarawera & Lakes Duck Tour in Rotorua New Zealand a "must do" activity.

Your journey of discovery of Rotorua and its lakes region begins in central Rotorua. You will board a WWII amphibious vehicle known as a "duck" and meet your legendary conDUCKtor who is in charge of your guided tour.

The first lake you will visit is Lake Okareka, known for amazing million dollar homes and its abundance of bird life. You will journey past the Sacred Lake Rotokakahe (the Green Lake) to view the magnificent volcanic domes of Mt. Tarawera.

Your second plunge will be into Lake Tarawera, where you will hear stories of the devastation that fateful day of the eruption in 1886. After cruising Tarawera amongst its ducks and swans, you will have the opportunity to disembark for 15 minutes to capture photos and stretch your legs.

On your return trip, you will view Te Wairoa (The Buried Village) before splashing down into Lake Tikitapu (the Blue Lake). You will pass Rotorua's burgeoning Te Whakarewarewa Forest before heading back to Rotorua.

This is a fun and enjoyable way to learn about Rotorua and New Zealand's most picturesque lakes region.
