See the Craters of the Moon

Visit the Craters of the Moon and you’ll see evidence of the lake’s fiery birth in the geysers, steaming craters and boiling mud pools.

This geothermical complex is situated a few kilometers north of town and is a great add-on to your visit to the Huka Falls. There is an admission fee (approx. $10 NZD) and it will give you access to the park and its walkway. The walk is some 3 kilometers and takes you across a field with boiling mud and steaming vents.

The walkway is super easy and generally flat, optionally you can add the higher terrace overlooking the complex. This trail is a little steep but nothing very strenuous.
