Rotorua thermal attractions map

Rotorua, Wai-O-Tapu, Waimangu

Geyser Link Rotorua operates a daily service departing Rotorua with convenient connections to Rotorua thermal wonders that the Rotorua volcanic plateau is famous for.

At Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland you will see the Lady Knox Geyser come to life and reach a height of up to 20 metres. Stroll around on your own and explore all the unique lakes, pools, craters and walkways that the park has to offer.

Or visit the Waimangu Volcanic Valley with it’s seven craters formed by the eruption of Mt Tarawera. Within 15 years of the Eruption, the hot springs of the Waimangu Geothermal System were established within the newly formed craters, making this the world’s newest geothermal eco-system. Today, you can enjoy a range of easy walking, advanced hiking or a boat cruise.

Half and full day options available. For the ultimate experience visit both parks in a day! For the Lord of the Rings enthusiast, combine a morning Geyser Link Tour with a Hobbiton afternoon tour. If you would like to feast on a traditional hangi meal visit Whakarewarewa.
