Kia Ora and Welcome! WanaHaka is focused on giving YOU a true Māori experience to connect you with the Tangata Whenua (people of the land). Our Wine tours connect the beautiful wineries around the Wanaka and Cromwell regions with 3 tour options from a 2.5 hr 'Short 'n Sweet' option, to the Wero Wine tour-5 vineyards in 5 hours). We will connect you with the Māori history and people of the land so you get the COMPLETE experience. The Māori Powhiri/Welcome to Wanaka and Central Otago is performed at that wanaka tree/tree in the water, at weddings and for groups as a welcome to our region. We have been operating since 2008 and we would love to share our passion, Mana/Spirit and Māori history with you. At WanaHaka Tours we believe "Culture is Connection", to get just photos of the land is not the true experience of travelling, connecting with the people of the land provides the authentic, human connection. Together both will make sure you have truely connected with New Zealand.
