Explore Footprints Waipoua

Join us for intimate and spiritual encounters with these majestic giants who have stood silently over thousands of years, through the generations, witnessing the passing of time. Beneath the canopy some of the largest remaining kauri trees in the world, draw from their wisdom and their strength. As a couple, a family or groups of friends, these giants will leave you awestruck.
