About the tour:
The tour starts from Auckland city centre from where you will be picked up from, then you’ll enjoy a two-hour scenic drive South of Auckland into Waikato, with a scenic stop or two for taking picturesque photos of New Zealand's lush countryside. You'll then make your way through the scenic roads into Rotorua for your next experience at Whakarawarewa - the living Maori village!
On the Whakarewarewa Guided Tour, you will explore an authentic living Maori village where people live on a daily basis, using natural geothermal resources to cook, bathe and heat their homes as they have for centuries. Discover the vibrancy of Maori culture and the fascinating traditions of the Tuhourangi Ngati Wahiao people, who shaped tourism in New Zealand. View the geothermal wonders of Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley up close, including the world-famous Pohutu geyser, boiling mud-pools, steam vents and bubbling pools. Enjoy a traditional cooking demonstration - watch our residents prepare Hangi meals in our in-ground steam boxes, and cook corn in the bubbling water of our geothermal hot pools – as they have for generations. Learn what it’s like to live in the challenging environment of the Whakarewarewa Valley, where daily life includes cooking in the bubbling pools and steam vents, and bathing in the refreshing therapeutic waters.
After you finish your amazing tour experience, you'll make your way to your next destination which is the Buried Village of Te Wairoa!
