Waimangu Volcanic Valley is Rotorua’s premier tourist attraction and a ‘must do’ eco-experience when you visit Rotorua.
This spectacular thermal attraction showcases unique ecology, rare botany and fascinating geothermal features such as steaming volcanic crater lakes. Frying Pan Lake is the world’s largest hot spring and Inferno Crater’s incredible blue lake is a photographer’s dream. A protected scenic reserve and wildlife refuge, Waimangu Volcanic Valley geothermal park is set in pristine New Zealand bush and encompasses Lake Rotomahana with its own, separate, geothermal system that can only be seen from our boat.
Waimangu Volcanic Valley is just 20 minutes south of Rotorua and 40 minutes north of Taupo. Self-guided eco-tours and walks through this geothermal park are offered, from a 45 minute walk to an extended 4 hours of discovery through this amazing Valley, often described by visitors as ‘other worldy’ and ‘just like Jurassic Park!’
Your price of admission includes Guide Sheets in up to 15 different languages.
