Perfectly positioned on a quiet street in National Park Village sits this charming three-bedroom, two-storey holiday home, reminiscent of the traditional snow chalets of Europe. Welcome to Tongariro Alpine Chalet!

Cosy and inviting, Tongariro Alpine Chalet boasts a wood burning fireplace and all the essentials to make your post-slope activities as enjoyable as your time spent on the mountain.

Sliding glass doors invite the sun to fill the lounge, upstairs bedroom, and front decks, while views of Mt Ruapehu from the rear rooms let you check out the ski conditions before you head out.

When you’re not on the slopes, Tongariro Alpine Chalet offers an extra large double garage for secure parking and storage of all your gear. A large grassy lawn provides parking for a campervan or boat, or just a fun place for the kids to play.

Tongariro Alpine Chalet is just 20 minutes drive from the ski fields at Whakapapa, and 45 minutes from Turoa’s snowy slopes.

On a summer getaway, you’ll be perfectly positioned to enjoy an array of adventure activities. Why not take a trip on Whakapapa’s SkyWaka, the longest vertical gondola ride in New Zealand, and grab a bite to eat at the top where the views are truly unbeatable.

Appointed a UNESCO world heritage site for its cultural landscapes, the Tongariro National Park offers a range of fantastic walks. From short and easy through to long and challenging, whatever you choose you’ll be rewarded with epic views, majestic waterfalls, and breathtaking landscapes.

With your base right in the heart of National Park Village, you’ll have no problem getting information on how to safely set out on the world famous Tongariro Crossing. Not for the faint hearted, this trek will see you traverse an active volcano, and Lord Of The Rings fans will love passing by Mt Ngauruhoe, otherwise known as Mt Doom.

If you’re after a bit of rest and relaxation, this stunning part of New Zealand offers opportunities abound for both individuals and groups. From meditation and mindfulness, to spa treatments and hot springs, you’ll find it all accessible by car.

In the park you’ll also find a selection of cafes and restaurants, including the casual Macrocarpa Cafe just a 5-minute walk, and the grand Chateau Tongariro a 10-minute drive, away from your home away from home.

A charming base for your year-round National Park adventures awaits, here at Tongariro Alpine Chalet!

Lovely accomodation, had a great time.

Stayed April 2019

We loved this house. It was cosy and clean and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the dry firewood and being able to store our mountain bikes in the garage.

Stayed September 2018

Overall a great stay. Quiet, safe road. Comfortable beds & pillows, good blankets, clean bedrooms and living areas. Great drying room with great water pressure and Hot water for the showers, use of the garage was a real bonus for the car. Well stocked kitchen utilities and appliances just like at home. Sky tv a real draw card for after the mountain. Wood Fire place was awesome at heating the house. Great location for walking to supermarket, bars and restaurants.

Stayed July 2018

Loved our stay at this lovely home in national park. Walking distance to shops, shuttle to snow, everything so convenient. The home was lovely with a beautiful open fireplace. Had everything you could possibly need, laundry facilities, drying room, well stocked kitchen, plenty of beds, board games, tv, etc.... The only problem was no WiFi was offered, which is unusual in 2018
