Immerse yourself in Maori culture as you enjoy a traditional ceremony set in a Maori village just outside of the town of Rotorua.

Enjoy a complimentary transfer from all Rotorua accommodation and sit back and relax as you take part in a traditional welcome ceremony before settling down to view powerful cultural entertainment.

Finish the night by feasting on a traditional hangi buffet- a form of cooking by using earth and hot stones. The evening draws to an end with the Poroporoaki – the official closing ceremony. There will be waiata (songs) and whaikorero (speeches), before you are safely transferred back to your Rotorua accommodation.
