Overview

Lonely Planet Code Green names this new Twilight Encounter daylight version as 1 of 82 amazing journeys and life changing experiences. With our Maori guide leading the way on the Daylight Encounter from Omapere, embark on ‘an experience of a lifetime’!

Early Maori forged a special affinity with this forest and had a profound spiritual respect for the massive trees still growing there. Experience this ancient bond and get to know the forest’s abundant bird life, fauna, and other inhabitants. Witness the rhythms of life as day turns into night.

Listen as your Maori guide regales you with deities, legends and stories of the forest, along with its other spiritual occupants. Marvel at the giant trees as your guide greets them with haunting sacred chants or ‘waiata’. Learn which plants Maori used for medicinal purposes.

Gaze up at ‘The Father of the Forest’. At roughly 2,500 to 3,000 years old, ‘Te Matua Ngahere’ is the world’s oldest known kauri tree. Watch as your guide greets this amazing forest giant as an old friend.
And there’s more! The highlight of the tour is meeting the giant Tane Mahuta, ‘The Lord of the Forest’.
