New Zealand’s Māori history, language and traditions add a unique cultural experience for visitors.
Māori culture is an integral part of Kiwi life. Māori are the tangata whenua, the indigenous people, of New Zealand. They arrived in New Zealand more than 1000 years ago from their Polynesian homeland of Hawaiki. European settlers arrived much later, in the 18th and 19th Centuries. Their pioneering efforts to live and build in tough landscapes can still be seen today.
Booking cultural experiences is easy and provides a memorable experience for your clients. And there are many heritage attractions to interest history buffs. The Waitangi Treaty Grounds in Northland explore New Zealand’s history. It shares a story of challenge, resilience and acceptance – of two peoples coming together as one.
