Waimangu Volcanic Valley

Waimangu Volcanic Valley connects people with the beating heart of the world’s youngest geothermal valley, its unique history and legacy. Home to the now hidden Pink and White Terraces, the eighth natural wonder of the world, Waimangu Volcanic Valley immerses visitors in the stories of the Mt Tarawera volcanic eruption, its people, and the resulting dramatic landscape changes that created the world’s youngest geothermal valley.

Through a variety of self-guided, and guided, nature walks, hikes, and lake cruises, interpretive signage, technology, map guides, and human to human interaction visitors immerse, imagine, and feel the unique geothermal features, regenerating forest, bird life, botany, and culture and legacy of the Waimangu Volcanic Valley.
