Visit Whakarewarewa, New Zealand's "Living Maori Village" and experience Maori culture up close!
Whakarewarewa Village is owned and operated by local Maori residents, providing an intimate look into day-to-day life in a Living Māori Village. For over 200 years the Tūhourangi Ngāti Wāhiao tribe have welcomed visitors into their backyard, opening the doors to their way of life and sharing the geothermal treasures.
Start your visit by joining in an hour long guided tour, led by a local guide, who is a descendant of generations of guides from the region. They will educate and delight you with stories of the Village and valley. See how the local people use natural geothermal energy for everyday use, and experience traditional dances and songs (including the legendary "Haka").
Once you're done, explore beyond the village with a self-guided nature walk around boiling mud pools, coloured lakes, and through native New Zealand bush. Walks range from 5 to 50 minutes and require only comfortable shoes and a low level of fitness. Whakarewarewa is home to the famous Pohutu and Prince of Wales Feathers geysers, so make sure you don't miss seeing them burst with steam.
