The area between Rotorua and Taupo hosts some of the most spectacular geothermal attractions in the world!
Waikite Thermal Valley has partnered with Waimangu Volcanic Valley to create a combo that will satisfy all of your geothermal needs. These “must see” activities are nestled within a truly unique New Zealand landscape that will be an eye opener for anybody exploring the Rotorua region.
Waimangu Volcanic Valley is the worlds youngest geothermal area, a place full of stories of how the world began. Mount Tarawera erupted in 1886 creating a volcanic valley full of spectacular volcanic craters, enormous hot water springs, beautiful geothermal features, rare and unusual plant life, brilliantly coloured microbiology and a wide array of New Zealand birdlife.
Immerse yourself in the wonders of the valley by taking a walk downhill for an hour or two exploring the aqua blue of the Inferno Crater, Echo Craters bubbling waters and a constantly changing landscape. If you want to make a day of it add a 45-minute boat trip across the tranquil waters of Lake Rotomahana which sits at the base of Mt Tarawera and learn about the history through their running commentary.
Spend the day in this unique valley and then process your eco experience with us at Waikite in our pure geothermal hotpools.
It’s well worth the price and a great day out for the whole family.
Adult $45.00 NZD

Another option is come and stay at our cosy campground and spend the weekend exploring both these awesome combos. The world is your oyster!
