Scenic Enrich - Tāne Mahuta, New Zealand

‘Lord of the Forest’, Tāne Mahuta 

Seeing the mighty Tāne Mahuta kauri tree for the first time is unforgettable. Listen to stories from your Māori guide about the ‘Lord of the Forest’, New Zealand’s largest known living kauri tree. According to Māori mythology Tāne is the son of Ranginui the sky father and Papatuanuku the earth mother. All living creatures of the forest are regarded as Tāne's children. Many feel Tāne Mahuta’s ancient presence when they stand before its grandeur. 
Scenic Enrich - Cape Reinga Lighthouse, New Zealand

Cape Reinga

Journey to the top of New Zealand – Cape Reinga – and nearby Ninety Mile Beach with its immense sand dunes.
Explore the lighthouse and see where the waters of the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean meet. The 'Reinga' part of the name is the Māori language word meaning the underworld and the Māori people believe that the cape is the point where the spirits of the dead enter the underworld. Learn about this remote and magical place.
Scenic Enrich - Mission Estate Winery, New Zealand

Mission Estate Winery

Meet the makers at a special wine tasting and dinner at Mission Estate Winery. Nestled in the Taradale hills on the outskirts of Napier, Mission Estate was established by French missionaries in 1851. The vines were planted to produce both sacramental and table wine and New Zealand’s first winery was thus born. The elegantly restored historic seminary building provides a stunning location for the award-winning Mission Restaurant.
