Explore walking and hiking options for all fitness levels in the Waimangu Volcanic Valley. Choose the highlights walk, or opt for the full walk. Add the Mt Haszard hiking trail for the full experience.

Enjoy views of mysterious and beautiful Inferno Crater which rises and falls as it heats and cools. See the delicate sinter terraces growing from minerals solidifying out of the hot spring water. Waimangu Volcanic Valley is home to Frying Pan Lake, one of the largest hot water springs in the World.

Brilliantly coloured microbes cloak the hot rocks. Tiny springs and geysers play. Immerse yourself amongst the rare and unusual plants that grow on the hot earths of Waimangu, amongst the regenerating native forests.

Our shuttle bus returns you from the end of your walk / hike back to the entrance. We open daily at 8:30am.
