White Island Flight Only

About Trip:

It's not every day you get to ride a helicopter and land in the middle of a volcanic crater. Aerius Helicopter will make this happen, you just need to enjoy the view.

Sitting 52 km. away from the Bay of Plenty's coastline, White Island is an active volcano right in the middle of the sea. This volcano is also one of the links of a chain of volcanoes known as the Pacific Ring of Fire. Can you picture yourself flying over this magnificent display of nature's power? Aerius Helicopter will make it happen.


  • This is a flight only and does not include White Island crater landing and tour.
  • If you wish to land on White Island see our White Island Tour product for crater landings and volcanic tours.
