A rotating collection of favorite days
on our favorite tours


See Mother Nature in full force at the Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland, where geysers erupt columns of steam and mud pools bubble.


Visit a traditional Maori village to learn about their indigenous customs and practice the haka, a warrior dance where you’re encouraged to stick out your tongue.


Step 1: Prepare your ingredients. Step 2: Place them in a pit and cover with hot rocks and wet leaves until fully cooked. Step 3: Dig in to your traditional Maori hangi meal.

Spoiler alert: the 11 other days of Cultures of the South Pacific are just as incredible. Forage for fare with an Aboriginal guide in Sydney's Royal Botanical Gardens, chat with Cook Islanders over a tropical lunch, and try your hand at shearing some of New Zealand’s woolier residents.
