After learning about the unique healing muds of Hells Gate during your walk of the geothermal area, experience this for yourself at New Zealand’s Historic Spa experience - the Hells Gate Mud Bath and Spa.The natural geothermal mud can be liberally smoothed over the skin while relaxing in the warm sulphurous waters for 20 minutes. The mud bath is followed by a cool shower which helps restore blood circulation before relaxing in the hot sulphur mineral spas. The warm geothermal mud opens and cleans the skin’s pores, while the sulphur spa’s give your skin a gentle exfoliation and deep cleansing, leaving your skin clean, soft and smooth to touch.
