Te Puia

Geothermal Wonders

Discover one of New Zealand’s most magnificent geothermal wonderlands and Māori cultural centres.

For generations, Te Puia has welcomed manuhiri (visitors) from all over the world to explore the magic hidden within Te Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley.
Marvel at the dramatic geysers, bubbling mud, and beautiful native bush which you’ll explore on your personalised Te Ra Guided Experience by day, or the Geyser By Night or Te Po Indigenous Experience or tours by night.
Watch carvers and weavers keep traditional skills alive at the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute.
Combine Te Ra + Haka to witness a traditional Māori cultural performance you’ll never forget.
Get up close to New Zealand’s national treasure, the native kiwi, in the state-of-the-art Kiwi Conservation Centre.
Dine on delectable dishes at Pātaka Kai Restaurant while overlooking the geothermal valley, or under the Geyser Marquee in the Steambox experience.

Be sure to say hi to Kahu, one of the Original Guides of Rotorua. He's 64 going on 24 and a wonderfully eccentric tour guide on your journey through the geothermal wonderland.
