Heading out from central Auckland and taking the State Highway you will soon find yourself getting away from the hustle and bustle of the big little city as you start to hit the lush green countryside.

Come and see the history and beauty of the Lady Knox Geyser at 10.15am every day. Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland is a spectacular showcase of New Zealand’s most colourful and unique geothermal elements sculpted by thousands of years of volcanic activity.

Hell's Gate Tikitere Experience

Combine a guided or self-guided exploration of our geothermal reserve with a private mud and semi-private sulphur spa experience. Begin your visit by walking through the reserve, where you’ll see erupting waters, active mud volcanoes and land coral. Afterwards, enjoy a private mud bath and sulphur spa, experiencing the healing properties local Māori have been using for centuries.

This is our premium and personalised experience where we showcase the very best Rotorua Thermal Wonderland has to offer.
