Natural world

This full day tour provides a window into the ancient rainforest life of the early Maori inhabitants of Te Urewera, the vast wooded mountain country between the North Island’s central plateau and verdant east coast. On the leisurely four and a half hours’ walk, local Maori guides will teach you about the tribal history of this isolated region alongside fascinating interpretations of its rich flora and fauna. Learn how the rainforest’s ecological riches provided sustenance for these hardy peoples. You’ll also take a relaxing lunch on the banks of the picturesque Whirinaki River, providing you with the opportunity to appreciate the solitude of one of New Zealand’s least-touched wilderness areas.
