Hell’s Gate Geothermal Reserve & Mud Spa

Witness a land born of myth and legend, where energy from a world below heats the earth, boiling mud and billowing steam into the air above.

Journey through native bush that opens up into geothermal landscapes, and bathe in mud and sulphur pools that revitalise the mind, body and soul.

Experience New Zealand’s most active geothermal park and mud spa as it excites, inspires and soothes like it has done for centuries.
