Important Annoucement: The Maori people have declared a ritual closure of the forests in the area of Aio Wira, to protect the Kauri trees, which are threatened by diseases spread mostly by visiting humans. We are currently searching for another venue. Our aim is to find one on the North Island, at a distance from Auckland and with lodging and food services comparable to Aio Wira.
