Family Fun In The Tongariro National Park

With new quests and adventures around every corner, your family will soon create lasting family memories staying in one of our family-friendly villages.


Spend quality time together - away from the stresses of big city lives - as you explore the vast landscape by bike or foot, climb the highest peak or float down one of our mighty rivers.

From June to October, come and play in the snow. Go sledding or get the kids on skis or a snowboard at Happy Valley - New Zealand's largest beginners ski slope - at Whakapapa on Mt Ruapehu.

Throughout the year take, a gondola ride to the Knoll Ridge Chalet on Mt Ruapehu - the highest eatery in New Zealand at 2020m.

Challenge the kids to game of mini-golf or test their courage on an indoor climbing wall. For the more adventurous, nothing beats the thrill of quad biking on wide open spaces through some of New Zealand's most stunning scenery, or taking a scenic flight over three active volcanoes.

And at the end of the day, relive your adventures over a great meal in a family-friendly restaurant, before relaxing and recharging in a comfy and warm, family suite.

With so much to do and experience for kids and parents alike, it's little wonder this is the adventure playground for thousands of families each year.
