Activities at Ruapehu Country Lodge

If you don’t want to venture too far or you want a relaxing day, Ruapehu Country Lodge offers many activities to entertain you.

Ruapehu Country Lodge is adjacent to the Waimarino Golf Course – you can step straight out of your suite on to the third tee. The Waimarino Golf Course is one of the hidden gems of Ohakune and the cost for a round of golf is only $30. If you need to hire clubs or a trundler the cost is an additional $20 (prices subject to change). Enjoy the scenic grounds of the golf course and relax in the gardens at Ruapehu Country Lodge afterwards.

Petanque in New Zealand is known as 'the friendliest game in town'. Ask your hosts Marie & Bernie for a set of boules. Draw your circle, throw your cochonnet and enjoy a relaxing game of petanque.

Hot Tub
Pamper yourself, relax and have a long soak in a hot tub after being out for the day. Ask us for further details

Sky TV
The television in your suite is tuned to local freeview channels, and Sky TV (cable TV) is available in the relaxed atmosphere of the guest lounge. This is a great place to watch a live test match or catch up on the motor racing after a day on the slopes or out cycling or hiking in the Ruapehu area.

Expansive gardens
There are many beautiful areas in the manicured garden to sit and enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening as the sun goes down. Visit the chickens - there is chicken feed nearby if they ask you for food!

Enjoy the delicious aroma and taste of freshly barbequed food. A barbeque is available for your use.

Guest Lounge

Our dedicated guest lounge is a peaceful relaxing place to sit in the evening and catchup with emails and communications from friends. In winter, watch a live sporting match on the big screen in the lounge.
