Powhiri Maori Welcome on Titiraupenga

Elevate your connection with New Zealand during a highly spiritual Maori experience. The proud Maori will welcome you with a Powhiri ceremony, an honour that is rarely extended to non-Maori visitors.  

After being dropped off by a private car, you’ll do a short uphill hike on Titiraupenga Mountain. Getting a sense of thousands of years of heritage and history, you’ll be treated to a touching expression of tribal culture. 

Tribesmen and women will appear with spear in hand to chant, giving their blessings to you as honoured guests. When the traditional protection and permission to enter your newfound foreign land, the performance will end with a smile and a head to head contact of compassion and love.
