Get outdoors and have some family fun with the Waimangu and Waikite Combo.
The Waimangu and Waikite Combo combines two iconic attractions.
Discover nature’s best
Your Waimangu Volcanic Valley walk or hike takes you on an ecology-focused adventure through the craters of this beautiful valley. As you walk through the youngest eco-systems in the world you will view a range of geothermal activity, native plants and bird-life, an activity not to be missed.
At any stage of your walk you can take our courtesy shuttle bus, which regularly circles the valley, back to the Waimangu Visitor Centre.
There are many walks, mainly downhill, for you to choose from. You will see Echo Crater, and Frying Pan Lake, the world’s largest hot water spring. Our mysterious and dramatic Inferno Crater and its beautiful blue hot lake will take your breath away.
Enjoy the serenity of our New Zealand native bush and you will see newly forming silica terraces and rare and unusual thermal plants.
Rotorua’s Waikite Valley Thermal Pools is a natural thermal bathing complex. Water for the pools comes straight out of the Te Manaroa natural boiling spring and it is then cooled before entering the pools.
This 100% natural thermal water is not treated with any chemicals nor is it filtered or recycled back into the pools. The ‘Living Waters’ of Waikite Valley is the only thermal pool complex of this size in New Zealand using only 100% pure natural geothermal water.
Indulge in the soft calcite-laden mineral water in temperatures of 35-38°Celsius seducing you into a total state of relaxation.
