Te Puia

Nau mai haere mai - Welcome to Te Puia

Situated five minutes from central Rotorua, Te Puia is an iconic destination for visitors featuring the world famous Pohutu Geyser, Māori cultural performances, live Kiwi, boiling mud pools, and native bush.

Te Puia is also the home of the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, and acts as a kaitiaki (guardian) of the traditional Māori skills of carving and weaving for future generations.

Our tradition of guiding in the Whakarewarewa geothermal valley extends for generations and many of our guides have direct links to Rotorua’s earliest hosts. We share stories and insight into this unique corner of the world.

Te Puia features 60 hectares of geothermal wonder just five minutes from Rotorua central city. We are home to the world famous Pohutu Geyser and the New Zealand Māori Arts & Crafts Institute.
