Reminded me of Yellowstone.  If you are a nature lover you will love this place; it is like stepping back in time....You can go on a guided walk and/or take the boat ride around lake for more information. The time spent there was very well worth it. I learned a lot and I really saw an amazing part of New Zealand. We did the boat trip and it was excellent. There is also a wonderful gift shop and a very nice cafe. I tried my first ginger slice there and became addicted! I would highly recommend this if you are all interest in seeing the real New Zealand." Visitor from USA, Dec 2017


"Nature at  its best! An absolute must when visiting the geothermal sites in Rotorua.  This place is absolutely amazing. It took us a good 2 hours to walk all the way to the lake but so worth it. The walk was real enjoyable and full of surprises." Visitor from Australia, Dec 2017


“Arrive early and have this fascinating valley to yourself.  We arrived just before 9am and in the next two hours walking to the lake we saw only 3 other couples and one group of bird watchers.There are so many different types of thermal and volcanic activity in the valley, you should allow 2 - 3 hours for the visit. The walk from the entrance is mostly downhill and you can catch the shuttle bus back up. Finally, the trail guide and information boards are excellent!" Visitor from the UK, Dec 2017 
“This is the volcanic attraction for you if you like walking. Why? On the day we visited it wasn't too crowded and in any case it's so bit it could probably take more people without it being a crush. We spent about 5 hours there including a well-earned coffee at the end, and managed to see every one of the numbered sites......There is just enough useful information to help make sense of what you're looking at, and the craters are simply spectacular. The sulphurous odour was never overpowering and in much of the park there is little or no smell. visitor from the UK Nov 2017


"Amazing scenery in a very natural setting.   My family and I had a wonderful afternoon at the Waimangu Volcanic Rift valley.  We arrived at about 3 pm and had the place almost to ourselves, as I imagine it's less busy in the afternoon.  The whole area had an amazing variation of vegetation, geothermal attractions, coloured pools, waterfalls and more.  We also loved how natural the scenery was, with few (but appropriate) modifications made to the park for tourist purposes.  The only problem, which was our own fault, was that we didn't end up having time to complete the advanced hiking track .....  If you wish to complete this where you will see other craters/no doubt other beauties, arrive around 3 hours before the park closes." ​Visitor from Australia, 2017


“Great views.  Visited this thermal wonderland as part of a tour.  Great views of the volcanic activity that creates the pools of super heated liquid.  Many mini geysers bubbling up along the streams. Similar to Yellowstone but with rugged landscapes looking like Lord of the Rings."  Visitor from USA, 2017


“Super cool place to see.  We hired a private guide to walk us through this fantastic place and it did not disappoint  What an amazing place!  The nature was very cool.  We saw lots of interesting bird life.  The guide was knowledgeable and fun.  It was an incredible experience." Visitors from USA, 2017
“Well worth a visit.  One of the best places to understand the history of the Rotorua area.  Walking through the park - which is beautiful, very well kept and mostly untouched - you will see amazing scenery:  Mountains, craters and all sorts of geothermal-related features.  The boat ride on Lake Rotomahana gives you the opportunity to learn even more about the place and see where the famous Pink and White Terraces were before the eruption of Mt Tarawera.  Buses are available as well but, if you are keen to walk, bring a picnic and take your time." Visitor from New  Zealand, 2017
