From relaxing and romance to hiking, bike trails, high adrenalin adventures, snow skiing and fishing, we offer it all!

If you’re in the mood for other Mt Ruapehu activities like a volcanic walk, we can help you organise a hiking trip. Several scenic chairlift/gondola rides are available for those who just want to enjoy the view without the hike. Also on offer are: Tongariro Crossing excursions, fishing trips and bike trail adventures. 

During the winter season you can enjoy skiing at Turoa, Whakapapa or Tukino.  These ski fields cater for beginners through to the more advanced skier. At Turoa and Whakapapa, there are on-mountain rental outlets that rent out ski gear, or you can hire gear at the Junction on your way up the mountain.  You can make the decision on the spur of the moment if you wish.

Marie and Bernie want you to enjoy your time at Ruapehu Country Lodge. That’s why a range of facilities is available to you to use, ensuring that you can do a little, or do a lot. Take a walk around our gardens and get acquainted with the alpacas, chickens and sheep. Enjoy and relax in the spa bath, or sauna or just sit and enjoy the sunshine a lounger or any of the seating areas dotted around the property. Enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down.

Our large guest lounge with its fire is available to all our guests; you can spend evenings with your friends and family watching a live sporting match on the large screen television, or just sit and relax catch up on communications from home.
