Begin your journey in North Island, under the shadow of the holy Titiraupenga Mountain, receive a traditional Maori welcome; in this powerful and passionate ceremony, the Powhiri demonstrates how spirituality, a love of the land, and respect for others remain entrenched in this ancient culture. Meet with Maori local Tom, a multi-talented chef, hunter, guide, and fount of Maori wisdom. Journey into the wild alongside Tom where you will explore the Kaimanawa Ranges whilst hunting and gathering food which you will then prepare and cook.
Spend the day in the saddle, venturing out on horseback in the forest, subtropical interior. Discover wildlife, flora, and fauna before enjoying a chef-prepared picnic lunch in a secluded spot surrounded by nature. Find stunning panoramic vistas at a viewpoint high in the hills before making your way down to the coast to gallop along the white sand beaches as the sun begins to set. Before the sun sinks below the horizon, swim with your trusted steed in the open sea to perfectly round off the day.
