From site-seers to mountain enthusiasts, from romantics to families, from camping to luxury mountain chalets Discovery provides a literal breath of fresh air with friendly service, dramatic views, natural surrounds and a convenient base to enjoy the “great outdoors”.
Our story is simple. We are here because we love the natural beauty and adventure that surrounds Discovery, and everything else the “great outdoors” offers our children and ourselves.
The Team at Discovery are carefully hand picked for their love of the area and for their passion for providing genuine friendly service and helping our guests experience the best the region has to offer.
Discovery is surrounded by alpine meadows and the Tongariro National Park complimented with a dramatic panorama of the park volcanoes. Our property has a range of accommodation to suit most budgets from camping and huts through to motel apartments and luxury mountain chalets.
Discovery also operates a premium shuttle service to and from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing with early drop-offs in the morning and five scheduled pick-ups in the afternoon.
Located about half way between Whakapapa Village and National Park Village.
