Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari 

All year round

Visiting the Maunga offers you a way to nurture your wellbeing

Connecting with the natural world improves mood, concentration, and sleep, restores mental activity, reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and boosts the immune system. There are many guided or self guided offerings for individuals, groups and groups with extra needs. Book a guided tour. Join their rongoā or traditional Māori medicine practitioner, Ringi, on a gentle hīkoi in the ngahere. Take time away from the fast-paced world and immerse yourself for the day in an ancient forest environment. Refresh your energy and renew your perspective on life as you appreciate your surroundings and yourself. Or enjoy a forest flow session, a slow guided experience seated in an easily accessible part of the forest and perhaps take a short walk. Suitable for those with disabilities or limited movement.
