What to Expect

Join a local Maori guide to be introduced to the oldest and largest known kauri trees in the world! These sentinels have stood silently witnessing the passing of time. On this tour, you'll learn how culture and nature collide in the sensory experience of a lifetime.


Let your senses experience what it truly feels like to be insignificant at that moment. On this tour, you'll learn about the affinity and deep spiritual respect that Maori have for forests from your knowledgable guide. Plus, witness the transition of time and space as the sun sets on an ancient theatre. 

Dress to the season, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring a water bottle! Hokianga is a one-hour coach drive from Paihia in the Bay of Islands or a 3-hour drive from Auckland on the West Coast.
