Very nice walk trough this Volcanic Valley. A little expensive but if you check book.me NZ you’ll maybe find a deal like we did!

Nice trail easy/moderate (last part), view is ok. Crater lake is cool.

Nice nature walk and river

18$ per person (adult), so we'll look some pictures on Google.

Lovely little walk that I took my dog on seeing as it is also a dog friendly walk, it’s always a nice scenery to be walking through along the local Wairi river

Love this natural spa in the bush. Please remember to take your rubbish with you. This is a high traffic tourist attraction that generates no money. Please keep that in mind and enjoy

Aussie family love it! Wheelchair friendly. Awesome pics

My fiance and I had loads of fun. Felt like kids again. There are diff tracks to choose from depending on ur fitness or abilities. Even a bus to and from the lake where you can also pay to take a boat ride. We didn't but may do next time we return with family

A must do. Easy walking, good paths and mind blowing views. We parked at the top and walked down. Obviously if u park at the beach, ul b walking up this track. The views are worth it either way.

Lovely views.

Great to watch the kayakers.

Awesome views.

Great day walk.

Nice relaxing walk.

Beautiful trail. Definitely 'advanced', with some parts going over the ridgeline, and mostly single trail. Stunning views, definitely do it. Takes about 4.5 hours, plus stops.

The view was fantastic! Not 360 degrees as I had heard but beautiful anyways. The way up was good the first half but very muddy and slippery at some points to the top. Aslo quite challenging to the end.

It gets pretty steep toward the summit, but the views are worth it. The trail seems well maintained. The geothermal vents and crater lake along the way are also worth checking out.

Great hike! A lot of ups and downs, but the views are spectacular and the hot springs at the end is a real treat.

great easy hike.. only semi incline is the hike up the mountain which is optional.. we stopped at every point to learn about the history of this location and the views are fantastic.. worth every penny.

Great hike for a view of the valley! There were some very muddy sections, but nothing some hiking or trail running shoes can’t handle. We started at 10:45am. 55 min up to the peak and 35 minutes back to the carpark. We only saw a few other hikers on the trail but many more about to start when we were done.
