Hells Gate Geothermal Park & Mud Spa is Rotorua’s most active geothermal park with boiling mud, steaming sulphur pools, a mud volcano and the largest hot waterfall in the southern hemisphere.
As New Zealand’s historical site for geothermal bathing, Hells Gate is famous for its unique mud baths, sulphur pools and “health giving” waters. Since the 1950’s Maori have invited visitors to experience these beneficial waters and today, Hells Gate Geothermal Park & Mud Spa invites you to experience this for yourself. Guided tours and interactive experiences including wood carving, genuine geothermal mud bathing, hot sulphur spas, Miri Miri Maori Massage, Mud Facials & Body Scrubs are all available within this geothermal landscape. Shuttle transfers from central Rotorua 4 times daily.
