By day there are lots of activities, everything from bird watching, orchid hunting, conservation work to trekking through ancient trees.

At night you can experience Ruru (native owls). You may also hear the haunting call of Kiwi who call each other across the forest.

Expert guides are provided as there are few recognizable tracks and it is rough terrain, a genuine forest wilderness..

If you want a deep forest experience in a wild untamed New Zealand wilderness, that’ll free your mind from whatever is pressing it, this will do it. Be at one with nature.
