Te Puia Geyser & Maori Arts

A 90-minute motorcoach ride through the North island's gorgeous countryside brings you to Rotorua. Te Puia, recently featured on America's number 1 breakfast show - Good Morning America, is home to the internationally renowned spouting Pohutu Geyser and boasts silica terraces, pools of boiling mud and dramatic steams vents. Your kaiarahi (guide) will be keen to share the fascinating local lore and legends of this wonderful country. View the reserve's fascinating re-creation of an early Maori village. Te Puia's Maori Arts & Crafts Institute offers a journey into the rich heritage, ancient skills and culture of the Maori people. Young people from across New Zealand are selected as apprentices to learn skills ranging from carving to weaving, creating flax skirts and embroidering patterned bodices. Enjoy a delicious lunch and watch a lively Maori cultural performance, which includes the world famous haka -- a war dance designed to frighten an enemy and intricate hand games that are used to train young warriors.
