Te Wai Pounamu Journey

— teh : wai  po : na : mu journey

On the Te Wai Pounamu Journey you will experience an epic 13 day journey through some of New Zealand’s  premium waterways.

The waters of greenstone are what we will be following on this journey. Te Wai translates to The Water and Pounamu is the Indigenous Maori word for greenstone or jade. Originally used for tools, weapons and jewelry, pounamu is steeped with tradition, culture and spirituality and is the old name for the South Island of New Zealand.
