This half-day geothermal experience completely immerses you in the unique environment of Waimangu Volcanic Valley.
You can explore the world’s youngest geothermal valley at your own pace, with walking trails for all abilities and ambitions. Walks vary in length from 1.5km to 4.5km, covering a range of geothermal activity, hot springs, volcanic craters, nature and wildlife. Some highlights to look out for include the world’s largest hot spring, the Mt Haszard trail, and the brilliant blue Inferno Crater.
The trails ultimately lead you down to the lake, where you’ll enjoy relaxing 45 minute cruise around the tranquil waters of Lake Rotomahana. Throughout the cruise, you’ll encounter stunning geothermal activity only accessible by boat, as well as rare native birdlife. You can also listen to the historic stories of the lake, the Pink and White Terraces and the Mount Tarawera eruption from the onboard commentary.
