Day 2: Auckland to Rotorua

This morning we drive through King Country towards Rotorua. In Rotorua we take part in a 3-hour cultural 4WD tour and get an insight into the local ways of life, the land and the heritage of the Ngāti-Pikiao. Here we get to know the myths, legends and the rich history of the iwi, visit the marae and enjoy breathtaking views over the beautiful lake area around Rotorua. Later, you have the opportunity to visit a Māori village and experience Māori stories, arts and traditions. After the cultural experience, a hāngi is served - a traditional Māori meal cooked in the ground (all optional).
