Te Araroa: Tales from the Trails - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2015

It allows Pio to connect with the people and local histories in a very real way, all the while, the unspoilt landscapes hark back to a time when Māori and Pākehā explorers first encountered this land.
– Producer Meg Douglas
The tracks shows off all kinds of New Zealand experiences, both spiritual and physical, and of course, our stunning landscapes.
– Pio Terei in the introduction to the series
Māori boys don't need ski poles, we don't wear speedos. Just a pair of rugby shorts and a stick.
– Poi Terei, in an interview about Te Araroa, Stuff, 2 March 2015
I love this country. I really do. I've been in comedy a long time, and people bag Palmerston North and Hamilton, or Invercargill, but people live in those places and they love them. If you can't find something positive everywhere you go, you've got something wrong with your eyes.
– Poi Terei, in an article on Te Araroa, The NZ Herald, 21 May 2016
