Whaka Geothermal Trails
Our new geothermal nature trails provide exclusive access to an untouched geothermal landscape where Visitors can experience the raw nature of Papatuanuku (mother earth). The Jurassic park-like landscape is described as providing regenerative powers as You find yourself face-to-face with Nature, Hot Spring Lakes, Mud Pools and native manuka bushlands.
The trails are self-guided walks ranging between 45 and 90 minutes and suitable for people with an average level of fitness. These trails combine views of native ferns, edible plants and glimpses of our unique geothermal landscape, including colourful steaming lakes and thermal pools that you can only view at Whakarewarewa. You will definitely find a most memorable photo-snap opportunity for your Facebook and Instagram profile! The Whaka Geothermal Trails will be an ongoing reserve development as we open new areas to be discovered.
PLEASE NOTE: there is no access to Pohutu Geyser from our Geothermal Trails
