The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer.

Turn off Tairua Rd (highway 25) at the Opoutere junction (signposted), 10kms north of Whangamata. This road goes through the small town of Opoutere and then turns into metal. Go to the end of this road (about 10 kms), PAST the Prana entrance, coming to a dead end. Our driveway is the first on the right where you'll see a wooden Ashram Yoga sign. Follow the driveway and keep to the left following the signs. This driveway is shared by other residents. You'll see two houses, our centre is the yellow house on the left up the driveway, after you pass a brown shed at the bottom. If you get lost then please ask the locals for directions, or call us anytime. If your cellphone is out of range then you can use the pay phone in Opoutere or drive back towards the main road until you get reception. Ph: (07) 865 8451.
