“You can sign up to signature itineraries that take you with a guide to a location near a geothermal geyser for great views and there you could dine with a native family as they share their cultural influx and food,” the publication recommends.

“The list of must-try Māori foods includes the hāngi, which is prepared in an earthen oven with boiled pork, potatoes, kumara and dumplings.
