Directions to Hells Gate Geothermal Park and Mud Bath and Spa
Hell's Gate is a truly interactive geothermal 'theme park', where the ground literally bubbles beneath you. 50 acres of steaming fumaroles, hot waterfalls and sulphur lakes.
Follow in the footsteps of ancient Maori warriors and take a tour around Hells Gate's myriad of natural wonders. Numerous sulphur pools, including Sodom and Gomorrah, greet you as you enter, then it's onto the cascades of the Kakahi Falls, the largest hot waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere, the Sulphur Crystal Valley and the Devil's Cauldron.
Take some pictures of the Steaming Cliffs and Mud Volcano, before heading back round via the Hot Sulphur Lakes, Cooking Pools and Cold Water Streams.
You'll be expecting dinosaurs to jump out at you as you wind your way around Hells Gate, but it's worth every second just to see some of the amazing natural wonders of this volcanic wonderland.
After your adventure, you'll want to wind down at Hells Gate Mud Bath Spa. The Spa promises to indulge you with some treatments taken from the very sights you've just witnessed.
The spa features mud baths with magical healing properties, rehydration packages and the legendary 'Hurutini Pool', the ultimate mineral bath containing everything from silica, alumina and magnesium to iron, titanium and phosphorous. Throw in a massage, facial or bespoke body scrub, and your Hells Gate experience is complete.
