Rotorua Duck - Tarawera and Lakes Tour

Rotorua Duck - Tarawera and Lakes Tour

Rotorua Duck Tours is the first, and still the only, company in New Zealand to provide the unique and exciting opportunity to explore a special part of New Zealand in an authentic amphibious WWII landing craft.

Where else can you jump on a genuine amphibious WW2 vehicle and tour a city as well as its lakes without even leaving your seat? When it comes to what to do in Rotorua, it’s hard to go past our popular Tarawera and Lakes tour! Discover the history of the people and the landscapes that shaped our region while exploring some of our most beautiful scenery.

First, you’ll journey through the central city before heading straight out to Lake Okareka for your first ‘Splashdown’, nestled in the heart of a vibrant little community. You’ll then head through a magical, untouched scenic reserve before arriving at Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake), Rotorua’s most recreational lake. You’ll see untouched beauty at this magical little local gem.

From Lake Tikitapu it’s off to the main event, Lake Tarawera, right at the base of the mighty Mt Tarawera volcano. This volcano erupted in 1886, changing the history of Rotorua forever. You’ll learn in depth about this devastating eruption and the effects it had on our land and our people.

Unique vehicle, unique destination, unique history – there’s no better formula for an unforgettable experience!
