Information

From Ruatoria we fly up the Tapuaeroa Valley and over the Hikurangi saddle into Te Waka o Toi (Bay of Plenty) and the western boundary of Te Whanau-ā-Apanui our iwi cousins. Flying east you will get to see Marae along this cultural landscape and the Motu River, its headwaters in the Raukūmara ranges. Approaching Whangaparāoa is the beautiful Raukokore Church set against a backdrop of extensive and rich native bush. Literally hours from the nearest supermarket, hapu fish and hunt to feed whanau with kaimoana and some of the best wild pork in the world.

From East Cape, you will be flown to Lotton Point famous for its maumau fishing then south to Wharekahika (Hicks Bay), Te Araroa/ Whetumatarau, the East Cape lighthouse and Whangaokena before flying up the Waiapu River Valley past the beautiful and ornately carved St Andrews Church, Tikitiki. A memorial to local people who fought in WWI.
