The Hells Gate geothermal park is home to New Zealand’s largest active mud volcano and the Southern Hemisphere’s largest hot waterfall, as well as several other natural features. On your guided tour you’ll not only learn about these natural wonders, but also the history and culture of the local Maori people and the significance of this land to their ancestors. It’s a fun and interactive experience where you’ll be able to touch and feel the three different types of mud produced here, from the silky grey mud to the cold white mud- ask your guide about the healing properties of each one! Watch as the landscape changes around you and as you walk through clouds of steam and past points of legendary significance. After the tour, you’ll have the choice to explore the park on your own or be tempted to take a soak in one of the healing mud baths.
