Your Experience

Widely-acclaimed as one of New Zealand’s finest tourist attractions, this is an enthralling experience, as you are first introduced to the village with a formal ritual, beginning with a series of intimidating haka challenges and a peace offering laid at the feet of your group’s leader. Then the Powhiri welcome dance invites you into the marae, as the haunting Karanga calls goes around the forest. Your peaceful intentions have been accepted - you may enter! Exploring the village you’ll learn about the migration of Maori in canoes across the ocean; see warriors training with their weapons;

watch weaving and ancient horticultural practises, and even experience the traditional Maori tattoo ceremony! The hangi meal, cooked underground with hot stones, follows, before a thrilling ceremony at the Sacred Meeting House. An unforgettable introduction to the Maori people, if you’re visiting New Zealand then this is an absolute must-do.
