About Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley

Surrounded by emerald forest, Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley is home to the youngest geothermal system on the planet. It was carved into the landscape after Mt Tarawera erupted in 1886 and created a volcanic valley that stretches down to Lake Rotomahana.

Access to the valley is via a fern-lined trail. Self-guided hiking trails lead to Inferno Crater Lake, where the milky blue water can hit temperatures of up to 80 degrees Celsius. Don’t miss seeing Frying Pan Lake, the world's largest hot spring, or take on the Mt Haszard hiking trail, which unlocks sweeping countryside views.

For an alternative perspective, enjoy a scenic boat cruise past rugged cliffs, bubbling hot springs and steaming geysers. Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley is a mecca for birdwatchers, with the chance to spot fantails, black swans and endemic weweia dabchicks.

Getting there

Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley is a 25-minute drive from Rotorua and 1.5 hours from Tauranga. Shuttle buses run from Rotorua to Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley and stop at several points along the main access trail, including the lakeshore. Auckland International Airport is a three-hour drive away.
