A Geothermal Wonderland

Rotorua is a magical place. During our time there we visited several geothermal activity areas.

The most famous of them was the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, which is considered one of the most surreal places in the world. One of its highlights is the Champagne Pool (pictured on the right).

We also visited Te Puia, which is a collection of several active geysers, and the Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley, a 2-hour downhill walk (longer if you'd like to stop along the way for photos!) through stunning landscapes to a lake at the bottom of the hill.

Here are a few of my favourite images of the geothermal wonders of Rotorua. Enjoy!
