Welcome to The Urewera.

Discover why Te Urewera Rainforest Route, with its incredible wilderness landscapes and diverse native plants and birds, is also known as the Mystic Highway.... and in doing so discover some of the wonder and mystery of Aotearoa New Zealand's past.

Scenery to soothe the soul.  Walks and treks to revitalise your body and connect you with the land.  Horse treks to relive the experiences of the Maori and early settlers.  Fishing to still and focus your mind. Rafting the rapids for the excitement of being alive. Mountain biking to thrill and challenge you . . . . and hospitality from some of the last Maori tribes in Aotearoa New Zealand to make contact with the settlers.

This is the precious wilderness explored by Te Urewera Rainforest Route.

Take time to discover it for yourself.

Each link provides a summary of the activities and services that are available.  For more details follow the links to individual websites.

We look forward to hosting you.

Mauri Ora.
