Nau mai haere mai - Welcome to Te Puia.

Situated in Rotorua, Te Puia is an iconic destination for visitors from New Zealand and abroad. Our tradition of guiding in the Whakarewarewa geothermal valley extends for generations and many of our guides have direct links to Rotorua’s earliest hosts. We share stories and insight into this unique corner of the world.

Along with access to the world famous Pōhutu geyser, visitors have an opportunity to see live kiwi in the brand new Kiwi Conservation Centre, boiling mud pools, native bush and the National Schools of Wood Carving and Weaving. These are the threads that form the fabric of Te Puia, fitting its role as kaitiaki (guardian) of Māori culture for future generations.
