Overview

At the Port of Tauranga, guests are welcomed before taken on a Rotorua & Whakarewarewa Geothermal Maori Village from Tauranga sightseeing tour of the Rotorua city sights like the Government Gardens, the Lakefront and the Blue Baths while listening to full commentary. Tour also includes admission to, and guided tour of, the Whakarewarewa Geothermal Maori Village.

Step into a Living Maori Village, Whakarewarewa, a geothermal and cultural site that is truly unique in the world. As it’s a real Maori village, expect to immerse in an authentic experience and witness how the local Maori keep their traditions alive by utilising natural geothermal energy for their daily needs. These daily activities range from bathing in the healing and therapeutic waters, heating their homes, and using steam and bubbling waters to cook their food.

Marvel at the geothermal gems of Whakarewarewa Valley, including the celebrated Pohutu geyser, steam vents, boiling mud pools and bubbling pools with descriptive names like Korotiotio (grumpy old man) and Parekohuru (murderous ripples). Join one of the hourly guided tours for an entertaining and informative look at Maori culture and history. Enhance your understanding of how challenging it is to live in the Whakarewarewa Geothermal Field so you’ll better appreciate how important it is to protect this spectacle of nature for generations to come. The Tuhourangi/Ngati Wahiao tribe has apparently done their share of conservation as they have been welcoming visitors into their backyards for more than 200 years.

Witness a traditional Maori cultural performance (at 11:15 AM and 2:00PM) and feel the power of the spine-tingling Haka. Also included in the show are Maori songs and dance.

Guests are transported back to the port after the tour ends, guaranteed in enough time to join their ship for sailing.
