We can assist you with advice and transport arrangements (starting infront of The River Lodge to the Tongariro Crossing) for most activities in the region. Mt. Ruapehu, Tongariro National Park and Whanganui National Park are very unique environments with a range of short and long walks, guided or un-guided trout fishing adventures, and golfing at Waimarino Gold course is just two minutes away. The ultimate experience with flying over the three volcanoes is a must do (bookings at The River Lodge).

A hidden gem on the mangawhero river

This is a great little spot for a getaway, Dani is a great host who is happy to have a good chat but also able to give guests privacy. This is also a nice spot for a relaxing time while the mountain is closed. We appreciated Dani allowing our labrador to come on holiday with us and made our fur baby feel like a welcome guest. There is also a great selection of wines from Swiss winemakers based in New Zealand available for purchase, and a great continental breakfast. Thanks for the hospiutality Dani, I really hope that covid doesnt impact too much on this business as the plans to expand will make this a regular holiday spot for our family in years to come.

Fantastic base for cycling holiday

I had the opportunity to stay at the lodge last week and use it as a base for cycling trips. The Ohakune old coach road , and in particular the Mangapurua track were highlights , but the experience was very much enriched by my stay at the River Lodge. Dani was a great host. The breakfasts were beautiful and the accommodation itself was serene and relaxing ( 5 minutes in the swing chair by the river and work was a distant memory !) but what made it special was the extra attention paid by Dani to enhance my stay. We shared a delightful evening meal , he provided me with great advice about lesser known trails in the region and generally went above and beyond to make my stay memorable.Would very much recommend for those with a desire for a base for a cycling holiday in this region

Wedding magic

We booked the whole lodge and grounds for our wedding over the long weekend. Our guests that stayed at the lodge had only positive things to say and found the atmosphere very relaxing. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the lawns and gardens are well maintained. Over the past year Dani has put some very thoughtful and personal touches to the property that only adds to its magic. As a host Dani is very easy to deal with, very helpful and provides overall excellent hospitality. This place truly is one of Ohakune's hidden gems!

Best service, excellent experience

Stayed at chalet for two nights. The place was clean and tidy. The view was amazing. The spa was great for a cold night! Generous amount of food available for breakfast. Danny was an amazing host! He offer really great tips for around the area and also very accommodating. His service was personalized and his humor was on point. The fire place makes the place very cozy. Please try the red wine available there! They were really good. I would highly recommend staying here. Thanks again Danny.

One of the best accomodations on our trip :-)

We stayed at The River Lodge for two nights but could/should have stayed for longer. Our room was ultra-comfy with a fantastic view of the ruapehu volcano from the balcony and the big windows. Dani is a super nice host and takes great personal care about his guests. Yummy breakfast and a great selection of local wines (Hans Herzog!) and craft beers available straight from the fridge. The River Lodge is a perfect base station for hikes and walks such as Tongariro Alpine Crossing and others (off the beaten track, Dani will give very good recommendations). Alternatively you may grab a canoe and explore the local river running behind the lodge ;-)
