We offer transport to and from the beginning of the track daily - so you can get a lift right from your unit at Adventure Lodge to one of the most memorable experiences of a lifetime. ⁠
Book your trip on our website now - it's the perfect post-lockdown Christmas treat.⁠

Here in National park, we are very lucky to be surrounded by native forest, as well as dozens of scenic walking trails. This mighty ponga tree is just one of the New Zealand icons you can spot in the bush.⁠

We are so excited about our new 100% alpaca fibre fill duvets.
They are hypoallergenic, cosy and warm when it’s chilly, yet light as feathers for those warm NZ summer nights.
Come test them out for yourself!

Not a bad view to distract from a thigh burning ride up Ohakune Mountain Road. 🔥This is just one of the @mountainstoseanz cycle trails (although usually cycled downhill!) - which trails have you ticked off on this magnificent NZ Great Ride?
