Planning a holiday in the snow or just wanting to experience the magical Central Plateau. Then you can't go past Hukapapa Lodge. From the huge deck you can enjoy a hot coffee in the morning sun, view the mist rising over tranquil Raurimu, and watch the train going over the world renowned Raurimu Spiral. Visit the Raurimu Rex, cleverly sculptured out of driftwood, so popular with the kids. Get your ski gear on and hit the slopes. Only 20 mins to Whakapapa ski field. After a hard day of fun and adventure, kick back and relax in front of a blazing hot fire, or head off to the hot pools in Tokaanu. The friendly neighbors at Wades Landing have a licensed bar, and a restaurant that serves good value, hearty meals. A five min drive to National Park, and you'll find several bars and restaurants and a service station/grocery shop, where you can buy petrol and all your supplies.
This comfortable family home is fully equipped to give you the R and R you deserve. Easy to find on SH4, Raurimu. The handy location allows you to enjoy all the activities in Tongariro’s National Park – skiing, snowboarding, cycling, golfing, walking the Tongariro crossing or tramping the various walks in National Park.
