2 Hour Guided Walk

This is a fantastic option for tour groups and individuals who would like to experience the volcanic terrain but are limited for time or have inadequate fitness.

This shorter tour will take you to either: the Taranaki Falls; the Silica Rapids; or a drive to Tawhai falls and Meads Wall. Our guide will talk about the area with their local knowledge of geology, volcanology and New Zealand cultural history.

All clients making their own way (self-drive) should meet at the Adrift base in time for a 9:00am departure. This improves both safety and service as the Adrift base shop is outfitted with all equipment and clothing needs.  We endeavor to remove the risk of clients not having adequate clothing and equipment for the conditions.
