Where there is smoke there is... lava?
The landscape of New Zealand has been greatly affected by its volcanic past. As part of the Pacific Ocean's "Ring of Fire" (a formation that runs from Indonesia and Japan to the United States, down to Peru and finishing in New Zealand), the "Ring" gets its name due the seismic activity that occurs from eternally shifting tectonic plates. In New Zealand, there are several dormant and active volcanoes. The North Island has been shaped and changed by volcanic activity.
White Island, off the coast of Tauranga, is home to the active volcano "Whakaari". Drive your rental car here for tours run daily that will take you as close as safely possible to the active volcano. As you approach the island, you'll notice a plume of smoke escaping that can be seen from space.
Mt. Manganui is the top of a dormant volcano at the entrance of the harbor, also in the area of Tauranga, and can be visited with a hire car.
From the ski fields to the geysers of Rotorua, evidence of its volcanic past are all over the island.
