Outdoor Escapes

Tarawera Falls

1 Days Lake Tarawera 11km / 5 Hours

The spectacular Tarawera Falls walk is just a short boat ride away.

Our Tarawera Falls walk takes you by water taxi to discover the waterfall with a guided walk to the Tarawera Falls, after you enjoy lunch and a freshwater swim.

We’ll pick you up from Rotorua central, or we can meet you at the start of the walking track. From there we will catch a water taxi to Humphries Bay, where we will walk to the Tarawera Outlet and have a gourmet lunch, then enjoy a swim before heading to the stunning Tarawera Falls. Finally, we’ll catch a water taxi back to The Landing Café for a beer.

Our Tarawera Falls guided walk is a fantastic 1-day outdoor escape in the Rotorua Lakes district. Enjoy a safe and fun Rotorua walk with family or friends, and take advantage of our enthusiastic and knowledgeable Rotoroua walking guides.

NOTE: Using dynamic risk assessment, if at any point your instructor becomes aware that the party will not reach the destination on time, they may shorten or stop the excursion.
