The Ancient Village Traverse Tour



Only 10 minutes from the Napier City Centre.


Journey with us through the Ōtātara Pā Historic Reserve. Once the largest, oldest, and most outstanding fortified village in the country.


The significant archaeological features that still remain transport us back to the life of the ancient world.


Share in our traditional Māori customs while astonishing in the 360˚ panoramic views of the spectacular Hawke’s Bay.


Relish in fresh Māori seafood and traditional culinary delights, served under our treasured Kānuka trees.


Experience being a hunter gatherer as you capture the much loved food source of eel by the riverside.


Enjoy in our legendary stories of; Pania our ancestor, the battle on Ōtātara and Hikurangi Pā (village), our first Māori settlement, and archaeological features and artefacts.


Contribute to improving our environment by planting a native tree that we have raised with love, to make your mark in our land, and offset the carbon load of travel. You will watch it grow overtime with a special co-ordinate.



A basic fitness level is recommended, this tour involves periods of hill walking on a formed track
