Footprints Waipoua

Cultural in Opononi & Omapere

Led by Māori guides, this four-hour twilight tour into Waipoua Forest is a fantastic introduction to both the culture and the forest giants. Tribal history and stories are shared, and mesmerising karakia (prayers, incantations) are recited before the gargantuan trees. Daytime tours ($90) are also available, but the twilight tours amplify the sense of spirituality.
