Geyser By Night

What happens at Te Puia at night? Rotorua’s new attraction reveals all.

When darkness falls the true love story of Rotorua’s geothermal wonderland comes to life…

Geyser By Night begins at 6.45pm and concludes at 9pm. Please allow 2hrs 15mins for this experience.

Until now, the magic hidden within Te Puia has remained a secret that only Mother Nature has truly been exposed to. For the first time, the geothermal valley is revealed under night skies, providing a multi-sensory experience that can not be replicated anywhere else in the world.

Meet with your guide at the Main Entrance to Te Puia under our waharoa (gateway). After a brief kōrero (talk), you will be escorted to Te Heketanga-ā-Rangi, our superbly carved and architecturally designed, Māori feature.

Guided by torch, you will begin your journey into Te Puia to explore the valley, visiting many of our world-renowned landmarks and to hear the stories of Māori myths, passed down for generations. You will see carvings throughout your visit and if you’re lucky, hear the call of our Native Kiwi.

Walk down our rarely accessed pathway, where a traditional Māori dessert will be shared with you in front of Ngāraratuatara, an impressive, boiling cooking pool. See recently birthed mudpools and hear the sounds of our native wildlife, deep in Te Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley.

Our guides will take you on our waka (vehicle) and begin your journey towards the final feature of the evening.

The beauty and power of Pōhutu, the largest geyser in the southern hemisphere, will connect your wairua (spirit) with the beauty of papatūānuku (Mother Earth).
