Set amidst a landscape of erupting geothermal activity is the Living Maori Thermal Village of Whakarewarewa.

Join a guided tour and discover the wonders of Mother Nature and learn how we have come to live in harmony within this unique environment.

Sit back and relax at our twice daily Maori Cultural Performances while we entertain you through song and dance.

Interact with local Artists and learn how to make your own Harakeke (flax) treasure with our professional weaver, or have a private session with our residential Taa Moko (Maori tattoo) Artist to produce your very own design set on an A4 laminated sheet.

Indulge your senses and try our Traditional Geothermal Hangi, Hangi Pie or Corn Cob, a tasteful and refreshing experience.
