Northland with Maori Kaumatua (Elder)

Private tour in Auckland

Tour Price : please contact me for a quote Duration : kindly allow 2-3 days to get maximum satisfaction from the trip Languages: English, Russian

This private tour in Auckland is really special, as it provides the great opportunity to explore the marvelous nature of Northland – the northernmost region of New Zealand – while being accompanied by a Maori elder. It is a very rare honor to be guided by Maori Kaumatua, and you’ll have the chance to discover both the incredible nature of this region and get to learn about the way and the culture of the Maori, which are numerous in this part of the country. You’ll get to see this land from their perspective and learn what it used to look like when the first Maori settlers set foot on it more than a thousand years ago.

During this tour the elder will tell you the story of Maori on this rich land and how they learned to live on it long before the first Europeans arrived to the archipelago during the 17th century. It is a story of numerous battles, glory and traditions that are being preserved even these days. You’ll visit one of the Maori tribes living in the Northland region and get the chance to see their marae, which is a sacred and meeting place for the tribe. While exploring the rich Maori culture, you will be surrounded by astonishing natural beauties this land has to offer, as it’s often referred to by the locals as the Winterless North.

To conclude your journey among the virgin beaches, rich forests and beautiful mountains, the elder will accompany you to cape Reinga – the location from where the spirits of Maori transcend to their sacred land of Hawaiki.
