Hells Gate Geothermal Park and Mud Bath Spa
Hell’s Gate geothermal attraction is Rotorua's most active geothermal park. Take a walk past boiling hot pools and erupting waters with temperatures in excess of 100 degrees Celsius. Experience the steaming fumaroles; hot water lakes; sulphur crystals and deposits. See New Zealand's largest active mud volcano and Southern Hemisphere's largest hot waterfall. Feel relaxed as you soak in our sulphur spa and mud bath spa. Here you can get hands-on with the earth and the Maori culture as you stroll through this untamed wonderland. Learn to carve and weave flax as the Maori people do and you can take away your efforts as a memento of your time with us! At the Hell's Gate Spa, get down and dirty in the only geothermal mud baths in New Zealand with beautification minerals which help to clear the skin, all before you relax in the mineral spas. If your looking for something truly one of kind try a Miri Miri massage based on the traditional Maori style of massage, which not only relaxes the body, but through karakia (Maori prayer) relaxes the mind as well.
