Your guide shows you a series of colourful hot springs and volcanic features at Wai-O-Tapu. Around 10.15 a.m. we head over to see the Lady Knox geyser eruption.

Next, we take you on a short drive to the Waimangu Volcanic Valley where your guide explains the Mt. Tarawera eruption which blew open this spectacular, bush covered, geothermal park!

Excellent Eco Thermal Park tours

"Took the full day tour. The morning tour on Eco Thermal parks was really outstanding and not to be missed. The afternoon tour on the Buried Village and Living Maori Village was good though not as spectacular as the signts in the morning tour. The blue and green lakes were sort of disappointing - it was just a quick photo stop. Guide was excellent and tour was well organized."
