This activity provided some exciting photographic opportunities, as you walk down the track. The track is about 4 Kms in length from the top info centre to the jetty. The path is steep in places, and ... read more »
Although not as interesting or pretty as Wai-o-tapu, this thermal area is still well worth a visit. It's not cheap at $170 for a family of four, but that did include the little 45 minute boat trip dow... read more »
Did this with a 9 year old and a 12 year old. Staff were really helpful. Boat staff really helpful with getting on and off the boat as I have an injured leg. Really enjoyed the walk down. Info sheets ... read more »
Great spot. Good walk. Well kept. Boat trip very informative. Buses travel up and down regularly for those who tire of walking. Nice souvenir shop. Well worth a visit even on a dull day, much better in good weather.
Very rude staff. No where near helpful. Quite frankly disgusted that you would have to pay $37 just to go for a walk aswell especially if you are a kiwi born and bread in NZ!!! I was not the only person who felt this way as I was not the only one to walk away. But actually another 2 cars full of people walked away. Would not recommend.
A great value (we didn't do the boat tour, just the walk and the hike) for a good half-day activity. Pace yourselves, bring some water, and take the time to do the hike - but beware there are LOTS of stairs! Not for those out of shape for sure. There is a shuttle bus included in price that brings to back to the start- we definitely needed it after walking 3 hours. Great gift shop at the beginning/end with a cafe. Went on an overcast Monday right at opening time and had much of the trails to ourselves- a real treat!
They say it's the world's youngest geothermal system, but I would like to add that it is also one of the most beatiful systems around. Located a good 30 minute drive from the city centre, this should be a must do for any itinerary, if you have 3 hours to spare. The shortest walking trail is of 90 minutes and you can take a bus back as well. The various sights include a Frying Pan Lake, Inferno Crater Lake and several mini geysers along the way. It is a very beautiful walk and a must do for all walking enthusiasts. Just take some sun screen on a clear day. We availed of a 10% discount which we found on "Arrival" Magazine and it was worth every penny. A lovely place to picnic facing Lake Rotomahana is also available at the end of the complete walking trail, which lasts about 3 hours.
Really nice track with stunning scenaries. It is perfect for a half day trip (2-3 hours for the main track). Maybe the best thing is to couple it with Waiotapu on the same day.
