Rotorua Hell’s Gate Spa and geothermal walk

“Double, double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble…”

You could almost think Shakespeare had Hell’s Gate Rotorua in mind when he came up with these lines. Hell’s Gate looks, feels and smells exactly like witches’ brew. Hot, muddy water bubbles, the scent of sulphur fills the air, and the steam colours the grey rocks yellow. A fascinating, deadly place and at the same time alive with tiny little organisms.

Time your visit right and you can join a complimentary guided tour around the geothermal park (usually twice daily, but they might offer more tours in summer). If you prefer to walk through Hell’s Gate by yourself, you can do this, too. A map and brochure explain how the mud volcano works and exactly how warm the biggest hot water waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere is).

After the geothermal walk, head over to Hell’s Gate Spa. Take off all your silver jewellery as you’re about to indulge in a sulphur bath that will colour all silver black if you’re not careful. The hot mud pools rotate in 20-minute slots. Once it’s your turn, cover your body and face in the healing Rotorua mud and let dry for a bit. Rinse it off in the water and repeat. You can spend as much time as you like (or can bear, considering the smell) in the sulphur pools, looking over the moon-like landscape. Your skin will feel soft as baby skin for days.
