Northland and the Bay of Islands Feature


Twilight Encounter

Footprints–Waipoua. The night tours to see Tane Mahuta and Te Matua Ngahere are led by local Māori guides, experienced bushmen who enrich your experience with their knowledge of the forest and wildlife, waiata (traditional Māori song), and tales from Māori legend. Spend four hours on the Twilight Encounter (NZ$95); a shortened version, Meet Tane at Night, takes 1½ hours (NZ$70). If you're really pressed for time, but want more than your own self-guided 10-minute jaunt, there is also a 40-minute tour (NZ$25). 334 State Hwy. 12, Omapere, 0473. 09/405–8207.
