The couple we were travelling with had been to Rotorua 25 years ago and they were able to experience the geysers for free. They were disappointed at how commercialized, and costly, everything had become. We were looking for activities we could do to experience Rotorua...More

Hi the track can all be walked but must take care as in winter track is slippery. Beautiful place amazing walks. Times that it takes depends on the person walking it.
