by TePuia Duration 6h 45m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees

Combine a look at a spectacular geothermal valley with the best of Maori performing arts on this visit to the cultural centre and natural preserve of Te Puia. Your Day Pass is combined with an insightful tour and a brilliant traditional performance that lets you experience the unique side of local life.

Te Puia stands in the Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley, a 150-acre (60-ha) space where you can get a look at the natural forces at work on New Zealand's islands. Join a guided tour to see bubbling mud pools and the 100-foot (30-metre) plume of Pōhutu Geyser, see kiwi birds at home in a nearby enclosure, and get a chance to watch master carvers and weavers at work while your guides relate stories that help you see the surroundings in a new, fuller light.

Complete the experience with a chance to witness a kapa haka performance that features a lively realisation of Maori performing arts. With a combination of song, dance, and storytelling, the performers give you a sense of the culture that has been shaped by these lands for thousands of years. You can join in the haka or a vivid, graceful poi dance and get a feel for the action yourself.
