Lush native bush showcases the famous Silver Ferns and a variety of native birds and animals. The highlight of your ride is reaching the highest lookout which captures the most spectacular, breathtaking views overlooking Lake Rotorua and beyond.
Your journey continues onto a traditional Maori Village which provides an authentic introduction to Maori stories of the past. View the sacred freshwater spring “Fairy Spring” and glowworms in their natural habitat, witness the warriors in traditional dress paddling an ancient warrior canoe in a natural bush setting.
