You'll also see bubbling mud pools, hot springs, and more than 500 geothermal wonders that make this valley a true natural marvel.

In addition to the geothermal features, Te Puia is home to the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute. Here, you can watch traditional Maori carving and weaving demonstrations, gaining insight into these ancient art forms. You'll also visit a live kiwi enclosure to see New Zealand's iconic native bird up close.

Learn about Maori culture and traditions as you visit a sacred Marae (meeting house), where you'll hear stories of the Maori people and their connection to this land. This immersive cultural experience is complemented by the stunning natural surroundings, making your visit to Te Puia truly unforgettable.
