The people of Whakarewarewa The Living Maori Village have lived amongst the geothermal activity and used the steam and boiling water to cook their food, bathe, and warm their homes for hundreds of years. Enjoy a traditional hangi meal featuring vegetables cooked in a boiling cooking pool and a variety of meats steamed in boxes placed above natural steam vents. The food is both delicious and healthy. The on-site cafe also offers a range of other foods, snacks and drinks.
