TUMUTOA TOURS - RAEMARU LEGENDS TREK

Located on the main road in the village of Arorangi—across the road from Manuia Beach Resort is the exciting and newly established Tumutoa Tours – Tumutoa meaning warrior, and Ngametua (your tour guide) being exactly that. Passionate about his culture and heritage, Tumutoa brings a completely unique and authentic Cook Island experience. Tours are interactive, and has you learning hands-on how our ancestors once lived, and the traditional skills many Cook Islanders still practice today. Tumutoa’s main focus is to share his knowledge passed down to him through demonstration which he showcases in a special way through a variety of tours.
The Raemaru Legends Trek is a 2.5 hour tour that offers a distinctive historical experience. Rarotonga is rich in its culture, people, history and legends. There are many places of interest that were once sacred grounds blessed by our ancestors and your warrior guide will share with you the legend of Raemaru.
Set amongst the beautiful village and people of Vaka Puaikura, legend has it that the mountain top was stolen by Aitutakian warriors. Tumutoa will share with you his knowledge of the picturesque mountain and how it affected the people of Puaikura.
