With mud pools, sulphur spas, waterfalls and mud volcanos, Hell's Gate is the perfect place to explore with your little ones.
Formed around 10,000 years ago in a series of hydrothermal eruptions, Hell’s Gate features 50 acres of geothermal activity. Take a guided or self-guided interactive tour of New Zealand’s most active geothermal reserve, witnessing erupting waters, an active mud volcano, land coral and a hot waterfall. Get your hands and feet dirty in our healing mud foot pool or try your hand at Māori carving. You’ll soon discover the legends and myths behind Hell’s Gate.
Relax and rejuvenate in an outdoor mud bath, used for generations by Māori to ease joint and muscle pain. Then unwind in a sulphur spa overlooking a spectacular geothermal landscape, before cooling off in a beautiful spring-fed waterfall and cold plunge pool.
Bring the family along these school holidays for an unique mud experience you'll never forget! We welcome all whānau, big or small and our family pass now covers two adults and between two to four children.
