  • Short and easy walk with typical NZ vegetations and the thermal pools are with various colour. The famous champagne pool is really spectacular.  more »
  • We visited the thermal pools on a showery day and my family still found it very informative and interesting. Furthermore with a great guide we felt that we got our value for money.  more »
  • Take the ride by the opposite direction you won't stay with groups, and this will not change the surprise when you discover the champagne pool ;) Enjoy!
