As travellers ourselves we know what it’s like to explore a new country or to dash to the mountains for a few days. We aim to offer all the home comforts, plus a few extra touches, to help you relax and recharge with the splendour of Tongariro National Park as your backdrop.

We love meeting other travellers, and so enjoy sharing our home in this special part of the world with our guests. Our aim is to make your stay with us a truly memorable experience and to help you make the most of your time here. 

Tongariro Crossing Lodge holds a 4+-star Qualmark grading in the Bed & Breakfast category and achieved a Qualmark Silver Sustainable Tourism Business Award. 

Why National Park Village?

We fell in love with this region having spent many family trips here exploring the magnificent mountains and landscape in and around the Tongariro National Park - from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing to the ski and snowboard trails on Mt Ruapehu, and the unforgettable Whanganui River Journey. We believe National Park Village is the best place to stay to enjoy the Tongariro National Park and the wider Ruapehu region - and is the natural gateway to Tongariro National Park and all of its wonders.
