White island day tour
White Island is one of the most fascinating and easy to reach volcanoes on earth. It’s between 100,000 and 200,000 years old and walking on it is like walking on the moon. Hardly any plants survive the dramatic, acidic environment inside the crater walls. Instead, stunning beds of yellow crystals grow among hissing, steaming fumaroles.
Travel to the island by luxury launch for an in-depth guided tour with the island’s history and geology explained in an easy-tounderstand way. On the way you may see dolphins and if conditions are right, you can enjoy a snorkel in the clear
