It’s not just the otherworldly terrain that draws in tourists – the area is also a sacred land of New Zealand’s indigenous Maori tribes and visiting is as much a cultural experience as it is a natural wonder. The Maori have been using the mud and silica waters found in the geothermal area for good health and healing over hundreds of years and the terraces are now home to a recreated tradition Maori village. One of the most popular ways to visit is by enjoying a Maori Cultural Experience where you’ll get a chance to learn about the Maori’s deep connection to the land, while discovering some their unique traditions at a hangi (barbecue).
