Lake Rotomahana Boat Cruise (bus + boat cruise )

Cruise the tranquil waters of Lake Rotomahana and discover the history of the Mount Tarawera eruption while seeing thermal activity not accessible by foot.

The deepest lake in the North Island and the newest of all New Zealand's larger naturally formed lakes, Lake Rotomahana has a completely separate geothermal system.
On your guided 45-minute boat cruise you will be amazed by the spectacular geothermal activity that can be viewed only by boat, and cruise over the site of the famous Pink & White Terraces. Renowned in the 19th Century as the 8th Wonder of the World, they were thought to be completely destroyed by the 1886 Tarawera eruption. Recently, however, remnants have been discovered covered by sediment at the bottom of the lake.
Lake Rotomahana is a protected wildlife refuge and home to a large number of birds all year round.
The lake and surrounding land are protected from development, ensuring they will always remain as one of New Zealand's beautiful, unspoilt, natural, wilderness areas.
Patiti Island, in the middle of the Lake, has been restored by Waimangu Volcanic Valley Ltd, to be free from animal pests and a safe environment for local birds.

Full Waimangu Experience (self walk + boat cruise)

Your online booking time is your arrival time at Waimangu Reception. This gives you time to do the self-guided walk or hike before your boat cruise departure time. This half-day geothermal experience completely immerses you in the unique environment of Waimangu Volcanic Valley.
You can explore the world’s youngest geothermal valley at your own pace, with walking trails for all abilities and ambitions. Walks vary in length from 1.5km to 4.5km, covering a range of geothermal activity, hot springs, volcanic craters, nature and wildlife. Some highlights to look out for include the world's largest hot spring, the Mt Haszard trail, and the brilliant blue Inferno Crater.
The trails ultimately lead you down to the lake, where you’ll enjoy a relaxing 45-minute cruise around the tranquil waters of Lake Rotomahana. Throughout the cruise, you'll encounter stunning geothermal activity only accessible by boat, as well as rare native birdlife. You can also listen to the historical stories of the lake, the Pink and White Terraces and the Mount Tarawera eruption from the onboard commentary.
The Full Waimangu Experience allows you to explore every corner of the world's youngest volcanic valley.
Places on the boat cruise are limited, so booking in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment.
Make sure to download and use the free Waimangu App to discover hidden content, and rediscover the Pink & White Terraces.
