Hells Gate Mud Spa

Hells Gate Mud Spa

More than just a place of myth and legend, this land has the power to heal and excite anyone who meets it, just as it’s done for centuries. Come and discover New Zealand’s most unique geothermal experience.

At every twist and turn you’ll find native bush met with geothermal landscapes, a gift from Rūaumoko – God of volcanic activity.

As you walk through native bush and clouds of geothermic steam, you’ll discover why this land has inspired myths and legends. Once used by Māori warriors to heal their battle-scarred bodies, visitors now use the nutrient-rich waters and mud to ease inflammation and arthritis, as well as rejuvenate the skin. This unique blend of awe-inspiring power and natural healing properties is a thing of cultural legend – having been used for over 800 years.

Come along and you’ll soon discover why Hell’s Gate is New Zealand’s most unique and active geothermal reserve and mud spa.

Hell’s Gate and our surrounding region are known by a name steeped in legend.

Our landscape is constantly changing. To reflect this, we at Hell’s Gate thought it was about time we did too. Over the last few months, we have been working tirelessly to recreate who we are and better position ourselves as a brand, taking into consideration our land, our culture, our history, and the future of the New Zealand tourism industry. As kaitiaki of this area, it is our duty to pass on what we know – the stories, myths and legends that have given this land life – to visitors and future generations, just like those who have come before us.
