Situated just 25 minutes north of Taupo and 45 minutes south of Rotorua nestled on the shores of Lake Ohakuri lies ‘The Hidden Valley’ of Orakei Korako Cave and Thermal Park. Orakei Korako translated means “The Place of Adorning”.

Wander through a valley of unbelievable color, of bubbling hot springs, gushing geysers and unimaginable natural beauty preserved by its isolation from the outside world. Look down into Ruatapu Cave, one of only two geothermal Caves known to exist in the world, an experience not to be missed. 120 feet down, a thermal mirror pool is situated at the bottom.

Access to Orakei Korako is by ferry, at no extra charge. Average sightseeing time is about 1 hour. Ferries do not run to a timetable, so you may visit the valley as soon as you arrive if you wish.

It is open from 8am and the last boat to the thermal area leave at 4:30pm in the summer and 4pm in the winter. Free overnight Camper-van parking is available.
