Trekking in the mountains started when I was four years old. My Grandmother would send me to gather and count leaves and herbs for traditional healing. This is how ancient knowledge was passed on from one generation to another.
Little did I realise I would become a herbalist of traditional remedies and lead over 5000 tours to date for many visitors to the island.
As I grew, escaping to the mountains was a source of joy instead of the humdrum classroom routine. Nature was unspoilt and birds did not appear to fear man.
A love of showing visitors the pristine wild interior of our Rarotongan mountains led to becoming a bonafide business.
Keeping in shape was also a driving force and to share it with others. Pa's Treks commenced in 1987 when my girlfriend [ now my wife] sketched a cartoon picture of me standing on top of two mountains.
Next day the hotels and motels were alerted to a new activity of hiking. It was a great way to entertain their guests.
Guests tell me it means so much more to have personal experience and communication and so much safer.
I operate a professionally guided tour and encourage guests to appreciate the ecosystem and Polynesian way.
I look forward to meeting you when you visit my home, Rarotonga.
