  • We build a tailored itinerary. Once you’ve received it, we can answer any further questions and refine it until you are completely happy.
  • Book it. When you are satisfied with all the arrangements, we ask you to complete a booking form and pay a deposit, at which point we start confirming everything.

This is a remote spot, with not much else other than the ski slopes to keep you entertained. During the Spring, Summer and Autumn this becomes the North Island’s centre for hiking and there are some amazing paths which will lead you deep in to the National Park, most notably the famous Tongiraro Crossing.  However, you’re most definitely here for the skiing during winter - the only other real options are river rafting or taking a scenic flight over the volcanic and snow-covered mountain lakes.
