Our Wednesday and Friday sunset cultural nights include hosted roundtrip transport, guides, village experience visit, tapu lifting, warrior welcome, a cocktail, a traditional Umu (underground oven) feast and a spectacular stage show telling the story of our ancient heritage through singing, dancing and drumming.
Our dancers, musicians, chefs, barmen and guides are all descendants of Ariki (High Chief) Tinomana and are proud to be part of the extended family which brings this mountain village back to life – for you!
Puaikura villagers are involved in all aspects of the Highland Paradise experience, as guides, dancers, drummers, warriors, weavers, carvers, cooks, medicinal experts and many more. Most are understudied by village children - a legacy for the future.
Guests are transported by coach from their accommodation in the late afternoon to Highland Paradise where an evening of utterly unique and truly authentic cultural entertainment and feasting awaits!
