COVID19 Updates for Travellers and Industry.

Tipuna Tours is a iwi (tribe) owned eco-tourism operator offering cultural and historic guided tours.

Since the first encounters between European and Māori at Tolaga Bay, the welcoming spirit and manaakitanga (hospitality) of this region continues to grow. It is through the hosting of manuhiri (guests) and the sharing and exchanging of our stories that help keep our rich cultural heritage alive.

Our Māori guided tours are cultural, historical and bespoke. By foot or by 4 x 4, our tours can be tailor-made to your travel needs and interests.
