Raurimu Chalet

Raurimu Chalet is an iconic Kiwi bach just off Mt Ruapehu. The super cute A frame chalet has all the modern conveniences that you would wish for in a Kiwi Bach.

Plenty of wood to keep the fire going, a fully kitted out kitchen (tea, coffee and milk is provided, but bring your own groceries), an awesome rain shower, a flat screen TV for movie or show viewing on Netflix (or other media sources), room to spread out around the lounge and dining room and located right by the Central Mountains and adventure spots including the head of the Whanganui River.
