This is a great place to stay for those wanting to explore the Tongariro national park and all its activity options, from the world famous full day hike, or multi day hike. Superb Mountain biking trails including the 42 Traverse Mountain bike trail, and some of the best trout fishing in the world. In winter its an excellent base for the local Ski fields of Ruapehu and Whakapapa. This lodge is ideally suited for those wanting to take part in the local regions activities rather than a luxurious hotel. A communal and friendly feel. The lodge can provide transport for those needing to get to the start of the tracks and pick up from the end of them at an additional cost. There is also a hot spa pool to relieve those aching limbs.
