Waimangu, Waiotapu, Waikite Cruises
Waimangu, Waiotapu, and Waikite are home to three large and well known geothermal areas that occur in the central part of the Taupo Volcanic Zone. Classified as protected by Waikato Regional Council, Waimangu and Waiotapu contain probably the finest, easily-accessible thermal discharge features still in existence in New Zealand. The Te Ara Ahi cycle trail passes through the area, highlighting the thermal wonderland of steaming vents, bubbling mud pools and spectacular geysers. On the Te Manaroa Spring Walkway and Eco-Trail, you'll also find the largest single source of boiling water in New Zealand.
Mobile-friendly - Created on 10 June 1886, Waimangu Volcanic Valley is the only major geothermal system in the world wholly formed within historic times at a precisely known date as the result of a volcanic eruption. Walk through Waimangu's craters and enjoy a boat cruise on crater Lake Rotomahana to view spectacular geothermal activity. A 'must do' eco-experience when you visit Rotorua.
