This 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 see a range of geothermal activity, native plants and bird-life - sights not to be missed!
Visit the youngest geothermal system in the world and walk through the native flora and fauna. It is a 4km walk through the wildlife sanctuary and visits features such as the Frying Pan Lake, the largest hot spring in the world, Cathedral Rocks, Inferno Crater and Warbrick Terraces.
At the end of the walk is Lake Rotomahana, where you will board the Ariki Moana for a 45 minute cruise. You will see thermal activity and native bird life, all while receiving a full commentary from the skipper about what you are seeing and the history of the lake and the Mount Tarawera eruption.
At the end of the cruise a shuttle bus will be waiting to take you back to the visitor centre.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
