What you can expect

Experience the best of Te Puia geothermal valley in Rotorua with a Te Puia guided tour and indigenous evening experience package - the Te Pō Combo. Immerse yourself in some of New Zealand's renowned natural wonders on a 90-minute guided tour of the Te Puia geothermal valley. Then experience the rich Māori culture for yourself with a Haka performance and the world-famous Te Puia hangi dinner.

Begin your journey with a guided tour of Te Puia, where you will explore this iconic Rotorua geothermal park with a knowledgeable guide and learn about the fascinating history of the region. Marvel at the bubbling mud pools, steaming geysers, and the renowned Pohutu Geyser, which shoots steaming water up to 30 meters into the air. Your Te Puia guide will share stories and legends passed down through generations, giving you a deeper understanding of the significance of these natural wonders. Included in your Te Puia guided tour is entry to the Kiwi Conservation Centre, where you can meet New Zealand's national bird, as well as a visit to the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute.

After the Te Puia guided tour, it's time to indulge in a mouthwatering hangi dinner. This Māori inspired feast includes locally sourced cuisine, such as tender meats, succulent vegetables, and delicious desserts. After dinner, prepare to be captivated by a traditional Te Puia cultural performance at the beautifully carved meeting house. Watch as talented performers showcase traditional Māori song, dance, and storytelling. Be mesmerised by the powerful haka, a traditional war dance, and be moved by the hauntingly beautiful melodies of the waiata (songs).

The Te Puia indigenous evening experience concludes with a small group shuttle tour into the geothermal valley at night. Enjoy a hot chocolate while gazing out over the geothermal landscapes and marvelling at the impressive Pohutu Geyser.

Don't miss out on this unforgettable Te Puia guided tour and indigenous evening experience, where you can immerse yourself in the wonders of Te Puia, witness a captivating cultural performance, and indulge in a delectable hangi dinner.
