Maori Culture in New Zealand
The first people to call New Zealand home were Maori who settled the country sometime before the 14th century. They had travelled from Polynesia to New Zealand and then through a period of isolation developed their own distinctive and rich culture.
In better understanding Maori culture, you will better understand what it is to be a New Zealander.
These tours have dedicated Maori cultural experiences included in their itineraries.
Accommodated tours which overnight in Rotorua will be welcomed into the authentic Tamaki Maori Village, where you can discover and learn more about Maori art forms, ancient rituals and traditions. Sit down to a traditional Maori hangi (feast) with your Maori hosts (minimum numbers apply refer Notes).
Camping tours enjoy a Maori concert and Haka – the famous Maori dance – in the evening at the Bay of Islands overnight stop.
Hop on hop off tours have compulsory overnight stops. One of these is at the village of Mourea, near Rotorua on the North Island. Select hop on hop off tours stop here. It's a unique and special cultural overnight stay. This is an immersion into indigenous Maori culture and so much more than a show. You will learn about Maori traditions, history and culture and become fully interactive with Kapa Haka (Maori song and dance). An unforgettable, genuine and educational night!
