New Zealand

Bring some cut up potatoes, kumara and pumpkin to the Thermal Walk in Tokaanu. There are some pits in the hot water you can put your food in. Cover, come back in a couple of hours and voila your food is steamed – this is a poia, similar to a hangi but steamed, not smoked.

Time: 1 hr 20 min, return via same track

Taupo. You can try a huge range of honey and other bee products for free, interesting information about bees (I really like documentary you could watch there and that you could sit there in front of the documentary - TV very cosy with many pillows etc). But products when you wanted to buy them very expensive, great that you could look into the beehives.
