Maunga Hikurangi is the sacred mountain of the Ngati Porou people, and the first place in the world to see the sunrise. Be transported from Ruatoria up the mountain to the famous whakairo, where Ngati Porou guides will tell the stories of the carvings which represent Maui and Ngati Porou descendants. Tours include an opportunity to give back to our environment and take part in a native regenerative project, receive a gift from Ngati Porou and enjoy local kai together with the other guests while enjoying the stunning scenery.

Experience Maori culture. Discover our history. Do it first.
