WAIMANGU VOLCANIC VALLEY
Your Waimangu Volcanic Valley walk or hike takes you on an ecology-focused adventure of 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. You will see newly forming silica terraces and rare and unusual thermal plants.
