Tarawera Falls / Hot Water Beach

Boat ride to Falls walk, and return pick up on completion of your walk. Incorporates guided boat tour, Hot Water Beach & Natural Bush Hot Pool experience with cultural & geothermal commentary.

Activity Details
Starts with 25 minute water taxi ride across stunning Lake Tarawera from The Landing, Lake Tarawera to Te Tapahoro Bay (The Outlet) where walkers will be dropped off at the main jetty to do your return walk to the Tarawera Falls. The water taxi returns 3.5 hours later to take them on the 15 minute ride through the Ariki Arm to Hot Water Beach to explore its amazing geothermal area – the sand is warm enough for a fisherman to cook freshly caught trout! Along the way we talk about the area’s extraordinary history and unique ecosystem.

From Hot Water Beach we take another short boat trip along the bush-lined lake edge to the Natural Bush Hot Pool. They will have around 40 minutes then to lie back in the crystal clear tempered waters and enjoy their unspoiled native forest environment. Rewarding themselves for their walk. From there we do the 25 minute return journey back to The Landing.

What to Bring
- Good walking shoes, snacks or lunch, raincoat, camera.
- Optional: Swimming outfit, towel. For a quick dip in the river pool during summer and for the hot pool.
