The first thing I saw: The Chateau Tongariro Hotel looked like a country manor in the UK. The only change was that it was set among palm trees! It was a mix of Polynesia with the Commonwealth. Although it was a lodge on a grand scale, it still felt like a comfortable, cozy home.
The 4 star Chateau Tongariro is nestled in the National Park. Besides hiking, you can play 9 holes of golf, or take in a movie on site. You can set out on a day trek of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Coming from the Northern Hemisphere, I was delighted to ski in my summer while friends at home were lounging on the beach! Nearby is Australasia’s biggest ski field. Also close by, within 30 minutes, are two rivers, the Taupo and the Whanganui.
