Learn about authentic Māori culture during a day tour of Whakarewarewa, a living Māori village located in Rotorua’s famous geothermal valley.
Our experienced driver guides you to Rotorua and back past the spectacular coastal scenes, kiwifruit orchards and lakes of the Bay of Plenty in the comfort of an air-conditioned van.
The star of the tour is undoubtedly Whakarewarewa – an authentic Māori village that is still populated by the descendants of the original villagers. The local Māori have inhabited this area for centuries, devising ingenious ways to use hot springs to improve their way of life.
Whakarewarewas friendly guides, all of whom live on-site, will lead our group through the village describing how the surrounding geothermal pools are used for bathing, weather prediction, and even cooking. Hangi lunch include.
