About us

Tongariro Crossing Lodge is a family-owned and operated boutique lodge which caters for discerning travellers wanting a place where they can truly feel at home in superior comfort.

Guests love our spacious, warm and immaculately clean suites with their distinctive historic character, the quiet surroundings of our lovingly-tended gardens, and our hearty breakfast. Crafted to give guests the energy they need for a day on the slopes or tackling a tough hike, our cooked, continental or kids' breakfast is served with our famous freshly-baked homemade bread in our dining room with views of Mt Ngauruhoe on clear days. And at the end of a day's adventuring in the Tongariro National Park, guests enjoy relaxing in our tranquil garden bar or our cosy lounge bar in colder months.

Located in the heart of National Park Village - the gateway to the Tongariro National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and New Zealand's oldest National Park.

Whether you are coming to hike the legendary Tongariro Alpine Crossing, ski, snowboard or ride the Sky Waka gondola at Mt Ruapehu, admire the splendour of Mt Ngauruhoe, bike the many nearby mountain bike trails, canoe the mighty Whanganui River, or just want to relax and refresh among our magnificent mountains, Tongariro Crossing Lodge is the perfect base.

As travellers ourselves we know what it’s like exploring a new country or dashing down to the mountains for a weekend. Our focus is to provide our guests an unforgettable stay which enhances their experience of the magnificent Central Plateau region.

Due to the small size of our lodge, we can provide a very personal, warm and friendly environment where guests will feel rested, at home and taken care of from the moment they arrive.
