Our family is based in Auckland, but the Tongariro National Park has been a favorite area and to some degree a second home for us for over 35 years. Having worked in the area many years ago we were fortunate to be able to buy a section and build on this property - which is purpose built for the holiday visitor in mind.
Tongariro National Park is a special place - we never tire of the view of the mountains, they seem to change every time we look at them. These volcanoes have their own special energy - notwithstanding the occassions we have been there to watch them erupt! It is a very special place, we are sure that no matter your reason for visiting, you will come to understand why it has such a strong place in our hearts.
If you are looking for a short walk, we suggest the Taranaki Falls just up behind the Chateau Tongariro Hotel, which is where my husband proposed to me - standing right next to the crystal clear pool with the waterfall behind us.
There is lots to do in the region so feel free to ask us any questions about the area - we want to make sure you stay is as enjoyable as possible.
