A private two hour Maori tour

Available daily between Sunrise and Sunset

Havelock North and Hastings Based

Tour Description:

Visit the Celestial Compass and learn how our ancestors journeyed from one-side of the world to the other using ancient navigational tools. If you are an early riser, this is such a great place to see the sun-rise. Leaving the ancient navigational tools, we will make our way atop of the lofty Te Mata Peak in Havelock North. Where you will enjoy the panoramic views across the plains to the summits of the five pillars that hold up the heavens. 

Let a descendant of the legendary giant Te Mata, after whom the peak is named, provide their insider’s perspective to our local Maori People and relate stories of historical and contemporary Maori culture to provide you with their unique and personal point of view.

This is a private tour and is available at the time of the day that suits you.
