Start your rainforest adventure at Okaihau, and join your knowledgeable local guide on a walk through the Puketi forest. Gain fascinating insights into New Zealand's subtropical flora and fauna as you walk among towering kauri trees, the world’s second largest tree, found only in the country’s North Island.
On the half-day and full-day walks, keep an eye out for the rainforest's rare endemic birds and subtropical plant species, as your walk takes you beside rivers and waterfalls in full flow. Hear Maori legends and stories from European colonial history, and enjoy views of valleys filled with ancient trees, including two of the largest kauri in New Zealand.
See conservation at work, and find out how the forest evolved from young, to mature and established trees. Learn some of the trees' natives names and understand the ecology and mystery behind the kauri tree.
On the exciting two- to three-hour night-time walk, watch as the forest comes alive as daylight turns to evening. Listen as bird calls change from day to night, see bats flying overhead and feeding on insects, and keep a lookout for the rare nocturnal kiwi bird, New Zealand's national symbol.
Stop for refreshments on the three-hour morning and afternoon guided walks, and also enjoy lunch if you select the five-hour full-day tour.
