The Rotorua area is famous for its geothermal attractions and one of the best is to be seen while boating with Riverjet. Free entrance to Orakei Korako, the Hidden Valley, is part of the Riverjet Thermal Safari. We’ll take the time for you to take a leisurely walk through this magnificent thermal reserve nestled on the shores of Lake Ohakuri.
Orakei Korako translated means ‘The Place of Adorning.’ You’ll be amazed by this valley of fascinating colour with its bubbling hot springs, gushing geysers and breath taking natural beauty. The Hidden Valley is preserved by its isolation from the outside world and it looks almost the same as it did thousands of years ago.
If there is time, Riverjet will provide some refreshments for the group at the Orakei Korako café to give you a chance to reflect on this fascinating walk before getting back on board the jet boat for the thrilling return trip.
