Karitāne Māori Tours is located on the beautiful east coast of New Zealand's South Island, only a 30-minute drive from Otago's largest city, Dunedin.
Our tours are owned and operated by Kāti Huirapa ki Puketeraki, the local Maori iwi (people) of the area who wanted to share their passion for waka (canoes) and cultural practices with people from all over the world.
Our Southern Star Tour is hosted by Kane Holmes Haweturi. Kane is a man of mixed tribal affiliation both of North and South islands of New Zealand, having been raised in a truly southern environment.
His love of people and nature alike has truly lent his skills to guiding guests not only at home but abroad on the international stage.
