National Park Village borders the dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park (Tongariro Crossing) to the east and the Whanganui National Park to the West, in the middle of a true wilderness wonderland.
The Village is located near the base of Mt Ruapehu, at the intersection of SH4 & SH47 on the volcanic plateau, half way between Auckland and Wellington.
It boasts great views of all three mountains, Mt. Tongariro, Mt. Ngauruhoe (Mt Doom in the Lord of the Rings filming locations) and Mt. Ruapehu - a unique dual world heritage area, 300,000 years in the making.
