Absolute bliss.
Geothermal Wonders.


Bliss to be had in Native New Zealand Bush.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer you a range of the best eco tours in New Zealand. We are passionate about this land and love to share it with you.

Featured tours can include Hot Water Beach where you will not only see the unusual geothermal activity, but feel it. Dig your hands into the water at the lake’s edge and feel the warmth through the sand or immerse yourself in the warm water.
You can also include a visit to The Natural Bush Hot Pool nearby, an area surrounded by native New Zealand forest… with fern fronds silhouetted overhead. Just you and nature! Our other gem is the Tarawera Falls walk, one of the best short walks in New Zealand.

Definitely recommend this trip on the water taxi out on Lake Tarawera. Scenery is spectacular with the dormant volcano every present from out on this pristine lake, surrounded by bush. The fantastic soak in the hot pools was such an added bonus and, being off the beaten track, makes it so private and utterly relaxing. David the skipper is very knowledgeable about the area and has a mean sense of humour! It should be one to add to the "bucket" list!

Had a fantastic experience with David on the Lake Tarawera water taxi, not only is it a beautiful place to visit, but David's knowledge of the area just makes it a much better trip and it was made even better by a visit to the hot pool tucked away in the bush.
I would highly recommend this and will be doing it again in the new year.
