Te Po is Te Puia's evening cultural experience
Te Po is Te Puia’s evening cultural experience. It is a feast of storytelling, entertainment and Maori Cuisine.

Experience an authentic Maori welcome – When you visit Te Puia at night, you enjoy an in-depth experience of the customs and traditions of Maori, with a traditional powhiri (Maori welcoming ceremony), a warrior’s challenge and a full kapa haka (Maori performing arts) concert.

Enjoy a First-Class Maori Feast

Feeding guests is regarded by Maori as an honour and a sign of a tribe’s mana (standing), so a sumptuous banquet is provided during the evening. This banquet combines contemporary cuisine with a traditional hangi (earth-cooked oven meal), where kai (food) is steam-cooked by hot rocks in the earth, giving it a delicious smokey flavour.

Enjoy Illuminated Thermal Valley

Following dessert, you will be transported by our ‘people movers’ to enjoy the spectacular lighting of the Te Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley. Guests can wander around the illuminated natural attractions, including our world famous Pohutu geyser, while enjoying more Maori-inspired delicacies and a hot drink.

Maori Tradition

In Maori tradition, Te Po (the night) was a very important time. It was when Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatuanuku (Earth Mother) lay in an embrace. When separated, light permeated Te Po and Te Ao Marama (World of Life) began. Start time 6:15pm
