Geothermal walkways

The power and mystery of the earth’s inner workings are exposed in the strange and wonderful landscapes of Taupo’s geothermal areas.

Taupo's geothermal areas are among the best in New Zealand. Prepare for steam pouring from unexpected vents in the earth or drifting across bush-clad hills, rainbow-coloured silica terraces and turquoise mineral lakes, boiling mud pools that bubble and plop and spurting geysers.
