The best way to view the Bay of Plenty’s incredibly varied geothermal region is by air. We offer a range of unique and unforgettable scenic flights and excursions which feature this areas remarkable volcanic landscape. You can choose from a short flight over the city or our beautiful Crater Lake district or go for the experience of a life time and land on one of our local volcanoes! HELiPRO offers exclusive landings on the awe inspiring Mt. Tarawera volcano (site of the largest eruption in New Zealand’s living memory) as well as guided tours to White Island, New Zealand’s most active volcano. You can also combine a flight with jet-boating, fishing, rafting, golf, launch cruises, wine tours and lodge transfers. From experiencing the thrill of vertical flight to creating a memory of a lifetime there is something for everyone!
