Karen - Rotorua




Karen comes from a long line of Tourist Guides and is the great great great Grandaughter of Kui Guide Sophie who guided in the Rotorua region dating back some 126 years.

Karen a gracious Maori Lady with a heart of gold and passion to keep alive today the culture of her tribe that once lived in the ancient Village of ‘Te Ariki’ the closest Village to where the Pink and White Terraces once stood and which were sadly lost to the Mount Tarawera eruption of 1886.

You will learn of the significance of Lake Tarawera and Maori traditions as you find yourself at Punaromia – The Tarawera Landing where you will board a boat and follow in the footsteps of our dear Kuia, Guide Sophia as you cross the lake to where the Pink & White Terraces once stood majestically on the waters edge.
