Aitutaki Punarei Cultural Tour

Aitutaki Punarei Cultural Tour

When the works began on clearing and developing the site, sacred maraes were uncov-ered, artefact's were found, even the underground ovens (umu) used 200 years ago were uncovered with the ritual foods cooked in them.

Today the constructed buildings on the site are replicas of what once stood in the an-cient village. Everyone you meet on tour are descendants of those who once lived there and they are proud to have brought this ancient village back to life, to share with you.

Enjoy the myths & legends that will be told to you during the tour. You will visit sacred maraes (sacred meeting places). There is a lot of interaction on tour that will allow you to experience, and enjoy what was practised by their ancestors.

Learn to weave, prepare your lunch in the umu (underground oven), explore the lush tropical gardens and learn of the plants used for traditional medicine, you’ll also have the chance to learn the basics of the art of Cook Islands dancing. There is so much more that you will learn before you enjoy the traditional feast you prepared earlier in the day.

Also for something a little more extra, they run Punarei Private Tours on Tuesdays & Thurs-days, for guest who want to discover more or less and learn about the history at their own pace. The tour is conducted by no other than the man himself Ngaakitai Pureariki, the founder of the tour and the man on a lonely journey to revive the knowledge of his An-cestors on Aitutaki. Refreshments are also included on this tour. The experience can cater to you needs, and is one you will truly enjoy.
