What people are saying:

He walked 1.5 distances, a bit longer than other geothermal experiences in Taupo. Nevertheless, it is easy to walk on the wide boardwalk. There are many steam vents and several craters, including 2 mud pools. There is a circular circuit that requires 120 steps. I bypassed it because of my bad knees. Considering that the ticket is only $8, it is very worthwhile

    Great walk with the kids

    This was a cool walk, easy terrain and definitely felt like we had stepped into a weird planet. The boardwalks and tracks were well maintained and it was very cheap for a family of 4.

    Great place to see activity of volcanic origin.

    Great walking tracks around steaming tundra. Easy walks to specific hot vents , some stairs to climb but worth the effort. Small uphill area to lookout which gives expansive views around Taupo to the...

    Nice morning stroll

    Nice easy walk (wood paths and gravel) option of doing an up hill stair walk to a higher look out. Lots of steam vents everywhere. Be mindful however its not like Rotorua, no bubbling mud or geysers t...
