Setting out from Hokianga by coach, your Maori guide will brief you on the protocols for your visit to the Waipoua Forest. Stepping into our special world you will be walking under the same way that guided our ancestor Kupe from legendary Hawaiiki to New Zealand. On the paths of the forest we meet trees that were already giants before his arrival and that were standing before the birth of Christ.
You will experience the affinity that early Maori had with the forest and the deep spiritual respect they hold for the giants still growing there. Learn of the rich bird life and other fauna that inhabits the forest and witness the transitions of life.
