Lake Rotoiti Hot Pools

All year round

Being accessible only by boat or by air is what keeps this haven so unspoiled and pristine

Come and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding native flora and fauna, with eight mineral hot pools to soak in and the clear blue lake waters to cool down in. Check out the live stream online. There are season passes or casual fees available. These pools are the oldest commercially operated hot springs in New Zealand, having started in 1914. But for centuries, Māori used areas like this for rituals and rejuvenation.
