Maori Hangi and Cultural Performance with 4WD Buggy Adventure in Rotorua

About this activity
Head to the summit of Mount Ngongotaha on this 1.15 to 1.5 hour guided 4WD buggy adventure, travelling over 100 year old forestry trails. Lush native bush showcases the famous Silver Ferns and a variety of native birds and animals. The highlight of your ride is reaching the highest lookout which captures the most spectacular, breathtaking views overlooking Lake Rotorua and beyond.

Your journey continues onto a traditional Maori Village which provides an authentic introduction to Maori stories of the past. View the sacred freshwater spring “Fairy Spring” and glowworms in their natural habitat, witness the warriors in traditional dress paddling an ancient warrior canoe in a natural bush setting. Enjoy a traditional earth cooked Hangi feast served from a buffet - have the opportunity to view the succulent Hangi as it’s been uplifted from the earth oven into the ground. The Maori Village experience takes approximately 3 hours.

Please note you can do this Spirit Mountain combo experience across a 48 hour period. (You do not have to do the activities straight after each other). You will need to confirm your preferred departure time and date when you make your booking.

James and Calipso lead a wonderful buggy adventure. They were passionate about the history of the area which really brought the history to life. They also took the time to recommend additional sites that we should visit. We then had the Maori performance and dinner which was a do not miss. After the dinner there was a walk to the cold spring and a view of glow worms! Be sure to bring a warm coat. Both can be completed in one day easily but doesn't give you much time to wander.
