Join our Maori guide on what Lonely Planet Code Green describes as an experience of a lifetime: 1 of 82 amazing journeys and life changing experiences in the world.
The spiritual environment of the Waipoua Forest provides a natural stage for an unforgettable Footprints Waipoua encounter with some of the largest remaining kauri trees in the world.
‘Step into our World’ and let our local guides take you on a memorable journey through nature’s stages of evolution, whilst providing a mythological and interactive interpretation of life in the forest.
Meet our ancestors; the mighty Te Matua Ngahere (‘The Father of the Forest’) estimated to be between 2,500 and 3,000 years old, his mighty girth of 16 metres diameter. ‘The Four Sisters’ are a graceful collection of kauri trees that have grown close together in sibling harmony and finally, Tane Mahuta (‘The Lord of the Forest’) who stands an impressive 51 metres (150ft) tall.
Join us at Footprints Waipoua for an intimate encounter to learn how these trees are inter-twined with the lives of local Maori and the important role they play in the eco-system that is the Waipoua Forest.
