Orakei Korako (also know as 'The Hidden Valley') is a highly active geothermal area situated in the Taupo Volcanic Zone on the Waikato River at Lake Ohakuri. Orakei Korako is New Zealand's largest geyser field with around 26 active geysers and is one of the country's most stunning natural attractions.

Embark on a short ferry ride across the lake to begin the walk through some of New Zealand's most dynamic geothermal scenery including the Largest Silica Terrace in New Zealand, one of only two geothermal caves in the world and the highest concentration of geyser activity in one place in New Zealand, all packed into a 2.5km walk through some stunning terrain.

When you have finished the walk, relax with food or refreshments from our Cafe while you enjoy the views of Lake Ohakuri.
