K2K Mountain Bike
Now that the weather is cooling down a bit, it's the perfect time to get active and enjoy the beautiful scenery. This Track from Kinloch to Kawakawa Bay is the perfect opportunity to see the Lake and get spectacular views of the Tongariro National Park. The 19.5km are mainly downhill going through native flora and fauna. There are plenty of places to stop to enjoy some refreshments and take amazing photographs. Talk to our friendly staff at the reception if you would like to take advantage of our on-site mountain bike hire.

The Tongariro Crossing

An hours drive from the park you will find the start of the Tongariro Crossing. This amazing journey across the mountain ranges in the Tongariro National Park is a must-do when staying in the area. This 19km track is challenging, hiking up steep mountain ranges and climbing up the famous (or infamous) devil's staircase. We strongly recommend starting your journey at the Mangatepopo Road car park and booking a shuttle from the end-point, Ketetahi. There are many different shuttle-providers available, most of whom departure every 30 minutes. Please see our reception if you would like us to book a shuttle service.
