When you have an active volcano on your back doorstep #whakaari #whiteisland #shiftingsands #NZ 🌋
Former sulphur factory, unsurprisingly abandoned long ago since it's on an active volcano and kept getting blown away... mind-blowingly awesome place to visit. Whakaari/White Island, New Zealand, October 2014 #whakaari #whiteisland #newzealand #activevolcano
I love these lil bees. Even if every year they sting me. They're native to New Zealand, and call this volcano home! White Island isn't desolate. Unlike honey bees they're solitary, digging a lil nest in the dirt. During summer in the kanuka scrub on Moutohora all you can hear is these Leioproctus bees humming away ❤❤
We were very fortunate to fly to and land in the crater of an active volcano. This was a very cool experience and a true once in a lifetime opportunity! #newzealand #whiteisland #whakaari #volcano #helicopter #geothermal @aeriushelicopters @purenewzealand #bucketlist
“Don’t worry Mom, everything is awesome!” - This sign has never been more appropriate than now, when I am standing on the edge of New Zealand’s most active volcano, which is basically a tiny island🌋 It was named by Captain Cook in 1769, but the maori people call it Te Puia o Whakaari, which means “The Dramatic Volcano”. It is totally understandable, considering that the White Island has continuous volcanic activity for 150.000 years!☄️ / Sosem volt még ennyire helyénvaló ez a tábla, mint amikor Új-Zéland legaktívabb vulkánjának a szélén állok, ami tulajdonképpen egy apró sziget🌋 Captain Cook nevezte el így 1769-ben, a bennszülött maori emberek Te Puia o Whakaari-nak hívják, ami nagyjából azt jelenti, hogy “a drámai vulkán”. Teljesen érthető a név, tekintve hogy a White Island folyamatosan aktív már 150.000 éve!☄️ (Egyébként az idejutás is kalandos volt, másfél órát kellett egy kis hajóval utazni a szigetig, és a nagy hullámok valamint a bőséges reggeli nem volt jó kombó...😛 Cserébe delfinek ugráltak a hajó mellett🐬) 🌋 🌋 🌋 🌋 #beferekaborondbe #whiteisland #whakaari #Phoenix #whitesislandtour #newzealand #volcano #activevolcano #activevolcanoes #whiteislandtours #whakaari #teacherlucky #newzealandtrip #tauranga #tauranganz #taurangaphotographer #bayofplenty #bayofplentynz #bayofplentyphotographer
White Island lies approx 30 miles off shore from the north island and is one of New Zealand’s most active volcanos, with the last eruption being in 2017! . . . . . . . #volcano #whiteisland #whakaari #volcanos #bayofplenty #northislandnz #newzealand #nz #newzealandgram #newzealandguide #newzealandnatural #nzmustdo #whakatane #selfie #instagay #gay #gayboy #travel #travelgram #traveler #travelholic #traveling #travels #travelogger #photographyblog #instadaily
An awesome trip to Whakaari (White Island) an active marine volcano in the Bay of Plenty. 🌋 It last erupted in Sept 2017. The island was desolate and the crater lake breathtaking. Not sure the hard hat and gas mask were entirely necessary but the selfie definitely was! #whakaari #whiteisland #commondolphins #volcano #bayofplenty
Day 49 (11/03/19): An amazing morning spent visiting White Island - New Zealand's most active volcano. One of the craziest places I have ever visited, with steaming vents, bubbling streams and bright yellow pieces of sulphur scattered along our walk through the inner crater and to the steam filled crater lake ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #jonandmaisieontour #whiteisland #whiteislandtours @whiteislandtours #whakaari #volcano #nz #newzealand #landscapephotography
This is the only active marine volcano in New Zealand. Absolutely amazing. And it’s hard to breathe near crater #whakaari #whiteisland #volcano #geothermal #newzealand #nz #gonz #kiwi #travel #summer
Imagine approaching the island in Jurassic Park but instead of green slopes its alive with molten lava and smoke plumes 24/7. White Island is the only active marine volcano in the Southern Hemisphere that people can set foot on, and here you can walk up to the crater as well. You know something’s dangerous when you sign your life away beforehand... 😅🌋 📸: @gabriellamorton • • • • • • • • • • • • • #newzealand #nz #whiteisland #whakaari #whakatane #travel #roadtrip #roadtrippersnz #roadtripnz #travelgram #discovery #instago #instatravel #ilovetravel #wanderlust #adventure #keepexploring #passportready #beautifuldestinations #travelnz #photooftheday #ilovenewzealand #welovenz #welovenewzealand #kiwiexperience #bucketlist #discovernz #discovernewzealand #northisland #bayofplenty
Having been various shades of turquoise & seafoam over the last few months the crater lake at Whakaari/White Island is now a seaweed green. Mother Nature at her best, constantly changing and evolving, with no two days the same. #mothernaturerocks 📸: @badgergirl_21 . . . . . . #whiteislandtours #whakaari #whakatane #whiteisland #bayofplenty #newzealand #NZmustdo #volcano #marinevolcano #activevolcano #roamtheplanet #natgeotravelpic #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #travelgram #stayandwander #thisisnz #discoverearth #gottalovenz #traveltheworld #lonelyplanet #NoPlaceLikeHomeBOP #instatravel #worldtravelbook #explorenewzealand #passionpassport #discover_newzealand
Went by helicopter over to check out the White Island Volcano. It’s in the Bay of Plenty off the east coast of Whakatane, New Zealand. It was a great way to see the active volcano! We flew around the volcano a few times to check out the details from the air before landing and exploring the area by foot. It was a humbling experience to be so close to an active volcano. There was boiling water coming down the streams and open steam vents all along the trail. We had to wear hard hats and keep a gas mask with us, to use as needed. There is also a hundred year old sulfur plant on the island that’s got some of the old factory parts still there and part of the crumbling structure left behind. . . . . . . #nz #newzealand #whiteisland #volcano #activevolcano #helicopter #ocean #island #islands #bayofplenty #whakaari #sulfur #factory #oldbuilding #structure #travel #explore #nature #smoke #steam #acid #northisland #eastcoast #hike #trails #trail #hardhat #gasmask
It scares me to think one day I won't see dolphins all the time...
When flying over White Island Volcano (Whakaari) a gas mask is usually necessary. The views, totally worth it. . . #newzealand #volcano #whakaari #whiteisland #scenery #photography #helicopter

#Moutohora & #Whakaari . Whakaari is the one that enables us to predict our weather, cos it’s an active volcano, so which ever way the smoke is blowing says a lot about what weather we’ll experience. See how its pretty still but slightly from the west... that means good weather. If it’s anything from Ngati Porou; that pretty much means bad weather 😂

Black Petrels, Blue Water, White Island. New Zealand. The water was an incredibly intense blue and about 260 metres deep where these were taken. Loving my new Nikon D500 teamed up with my Tamron 150-600mm lens. #nzbirds #whakaari #whiteisland #seabirds #nzdphoto #NikonNZ

The island might only be 2.4km by 2km, but the volcano is 18km by 16km - so it's likely this whales swimming on top of the volcano 🌋
Just the world’s second largest whale species in front of New Zealand’s most active volcano, that we’d just walked round the crater of.

Have you ever walked on an active volcano? . . .
How cool is that to walk on the active volcano? Head for White Island (Whakaari), NZ’s only active marine volcano. An amazing experience, you'll never forget 😍 ——— Thật kul ngầu khi đứng trên một cái núi lửa vẫn còn đang hoạt động, đội mũ bảo hiểm, mặt đeo mặt nạ chống khí độc và tìm hiểu về nó giữa một hòn đảo bé xíu cách xa đất liền với mùi lưu huỳnh nồng nặc, khói bốc nghi ngút và quang cảnh thì không thể nào đẹp hoang dại hơn nữa😍 #whiteisland #nz #newzealand #volcano #activevolcano #nature #natural #wild #beautiful #instaphoto #wanderlust #travel #holidayneverend #vacation #nzmustdo #whakaari #travelblogger #throwback #photography #l4l #f4f #world #traveltheworld #cool #traveltips #favorite #traveler #ocean
White Island is New Zealand's most active cone volcano, so imagine what it feels like to land directly in the crater. Our team flew over with @volcanicairnz , and with the entire place to ourselves it was like exploring another planet. Don't let the hard hats or gas masks scare you – these are normal precautions for a safe and enjoyable tour. #SouthPacificByDesign
“Isn’t she lovely, isn’t she wonderful” 🎶 Stevie Wonder may not have been thinking about Whakaari/White Island when he wrote those lyrics, but there is no denying her beauty in this video from @autelrobotics , filmed on a recent visit to the island with @volcanicairnz. Absolutely stunning imagery from the Autel EVO. We. Can’t. Stop.

Anyone heading over to Rotorua Crankworx should check out White Island (Whakaari), it’s a day trip to a live volcanic island with boiling acidic pools and this crazy sulphuric river that turns the ocean yellow. It’s a rad place to visit. This was back in 2006 for your #throwbackthursday
Legend of Whakaari / White Island⠀ Māori gave White Island several names but the most widely known is Whakaari - meaning ’that which can be made visible’.⠀ ⠀ According to Māori legend, Whakaari was sent from Hawaiki - traditional homeland of the Māori - as a gift of fire to warm an ancient high priest named Ngatoroirangi.⠀ ⠀ Ngatoroirangi and his party were ascending Mt Tongariro - a volcano in the Central North Island - when they were surprised by a fierce blizzard. Close to death, Ngatoroirangi made a desperate plea to his sisters Te Pupu and Te Hoata for help.⠀ ⠀ The siblings rushed immediately to Ngatoroirangi’s aid, travelling beneath the earth and sea in the form of fire, rising occasionally to the surface. The first place they surfaced was Whakaari and thus, the volcano was created. They eventually made it to Ngatoroirangi to warm him with the fire from Hawaiki.⠀ ⠀ Wherever they paused and rose to the surface, the sisters left part of the fire they carried, creating the Central Plateau geothermal system that includes famous North Island attractions such as Tikitere / Hell’s Gate, Whakarewarewa Thermal Village, Waimungu, Waiotapu, Orakei Korako, Wairakei, Tokaanu and the three volcanic mountains of Tongariro, Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe.⠀ ⠀ #whiteisland #volcano #marinevolcano #nzhistory #naturalwonders #NewZealand #discoveryourworld #discover_nz #whakaari #moarihistory #history #legends ##worldbestgram #best_skyshots #beautifuldestinations #ourplanetdaily #travel #travelgram #neverstopexploring #aerial #aviation #aviationlovers #getnzonthemap #travelphotography
