In New Zealand we welcome manuhiri (guests) in the spirit of manaakitanga (respect, kindness and hospitality). Hear our call. Feel welcome.

We also present our visitors with a wero (challenge). This wero is a challenge and commitment to care for New Zealand. This wero is the Tiaki promise.

We encourage all visitors to pick up this wero. To follow the Tiaki Promise. To act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home.

We challenge ourselves and you to:

Care for land, sea, and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace.

Travel safely, showing care and consideration for all.

Respect culture, traveling with an open heart and mind.
