Journey with us to the outskirts of Rotorua, to a Maori village nestled in an ancient forest. There, after a formal and sacred ceremony of welcome, you’ll be welcomed through the fortifications and into the village.

As fires blaze, the entire village comes to life. See an learn about Maori art forms and Maori traditions. See Maori weaponry displays, watch women weaving and making Maori crafts, listen to villagers tell stories of their ancestors and history, experience traditional Maori tattoo, ancient horticultural practices and so much more. Traditional songs and dances are also performed for you – experience the unique Poi dance, breathtaking harmonies and the famed, powerful Maori Haka.

The Tamaki Rotorua Maori Village experience culminates in a sumptuous 3–course feast. Tamaki Rotorua Maori Village offers visitors an authentic Maori Hangi meal, steamed underground in the traditional way.
