$65 per adult and $35 per child (children under 5 are free) includes return boat ride, entry to the pools and warm sand beach.
Cruise across Lake Rotoiti to the geothermal paradise at Manupirua Hot Pools, accessible only by watercraft or floatplane. Soak in any of the eight pools, slip down the slide into the lake, paddle in the hot water beach, or grab a snack from the café.
This little haven has been rated one of New Zealand's best hot pool locations and is open 365 days of the year.
