1-Day Privately Guided Rainforest Tour - Whirinake Rainforest Experiences.

This tour is based on our one-day eco-cultural walk, but is tailor-made to best suit your own requirements, in terms of the duration of the walk component and the addition of other activities in the Whirinaki area. It is best suited for those who do not wish to participate in a departure with others.
On this tour, a personal Maori guide will take you on as much, or as little, of the usual one-day walk route as you wish.
Additional features include complimentary wine at the end of your time in the rainforest and a short visit to a historic Maori marae (village complex) nearby.

Departures ex Rotorua or Taupo.

Cost $325 per head.
Operates year-round. Minimum of two or Dollar equivalent.

The rainforests of the world are nature's pinnacle of achievement, matched only by their importance as the richest storehouses of plant and animal communities on Earth.
Under the closed canopy of a rainforest lies a moist shaded world of immense beauty in form and texture.

Welcome to such a world.

Welcome to the Whirinaki Rainforest, Te Urewera, central North Island, Aotearoa New Zealand.
