Experience the magical geothermal landscape at Orakei Korako - The Hidden Valley!
Arriving at the Visitor Centre your adventure begins with a short ferry ride across the lake to the geothermal field at Orakei Korako.
Enjoy a leisurely walk at your own pace, taking your time to snap some amazing photos of this impressive landscape.
Get close up views of boiling acid and mud pools, geysers and colourful silica terraces from the safety of the boardwalk trail.
Orakei Korako's most unique attraction is New Zealand's only geothermal cave - Ruatapu Cave (Sacred Hole) which extends down 35m to a crystal clear acid pool. Our viewing platform allows safe viewing of this most unique feature as access inside is prohibited.
Once you have finished your walk the ferry will transport you back to the visitor centre where you can purchase refreshments from MudCake Café (weekends only) or peruse the Souvenir Shop.
