Combine an authentic Maori cultural experience at Mitai Maori Village with a guided bush walk to see exotic glowworms and sacred Fairy Spring, then visit New Zealand's largest kiwi conservation center at Rainbow Springs.

Your evening begins with a pickup from your Rotorua hotel and ride to Mitai Maori Village. Upon arrival, be greeted by charming Maori maidens dressed in traditional attire. Walk through the village, learning about Maori customs, ancestry, carvings, weaponry, and ta moko body art.

Next, dine on a native hangi dinner, a hearty meal cooked below ground using hot stones and coals. Delight in the grace and beauty of the poi dance and the captivating haka—a full-body dance often associated with displays of prowess. For the grand finale, look to the Wai-o-whiro stream running next to the village as a warrior-filled ancient Maori canoe paddles by.

After an entertaining evening, join a guided bush walk to explore the only naturally occurring glow worms in the region, as well as the sacred Fairy Spring—a natural spring that releases more than 6.34 million gallons (24 million L) of pure water each day.

Complete your evening at Rainbow Springs Nature Park and have an up-close encounter with the kiwi, New Zealand's national icon. See these amazing nocturnal creatures come to life at night before returning to your hotel.
