Self-Guided Walk Only

Wheelchair access to valley walk is only possible for those visitors who can move or be moved in and out of their wheelchair for negotiating bus steps. Our shuttle buses do not have wheelchair lifts. People in wheelchairs must be accompanied by competent helpers. Contact Waimangu for further details on specific arrangements.

English-Speaking guides are available for group tours of 10 or more passengers. Pre-booking necessary (72 hours minimum). Additional charges apply for our guiding service.

At Waimangu Volcanic Valley we recognise that many of our visitors do not speak English as a first language. Accordingly, all visitor guide material for valley walks and boat cruises are printed in the following languages: Dutch, German, Chinese, English, Italian, Japanese, Hebrew, Russian, Korean, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Hindi and Slav. We also have basic fact sheets in Czech, Hungarian and Swedish.

Proof of local ID for each person must be shown on arrival to access the discounted local's rate. Online bookings will still require ID to be shown.
