About Chateau Tongariro Hotel:
Surrounded by the sacred peaks of Ruapehu, Ngauruhoe and Tongariro, Chateau Tongariro Hotel exudes a timeless elegance deeply rooted in New Zealand’s heritage. Occupying a prime spot in Tongariro National Park, the hotel honours the gracious gift of tribal land to the people of New Zealand in 1887. A variety of accommodation with National Park views ranges from spacious Family Rooms to Executive Spa Suites, all with tasteful furnishings and decor that reflects the hotel’s notable history. Our convenient, self-catering Fergusson Motel units put you in the heart of Whakapapa Village, where you can mingle with locals at our more casual eateries and Whakapapa bars while still having access to all the hotel services and facilities during your stay.
About the Rail Journey:
Experience the North Island’s extraordinary range of scenery in one journey as the Northern Explorer takes you through rolling green farmland and virgin bush, past quaint country towns and along rocky coasts. Along the way, you will see the Raurimu Spiral and many other iconic engineering solutions required to complete the trunk line that stretches the length of New Zealand's rugged North Island terrain. The journey through Tongariro National Park, with its three spectacular volcanic mountains – Tongariro, Ngāuruhoe and Ruapehu – is a highlight, a place of extremes and surprises, where snow-blanketed fields, ancient lava flows and dense beech forests can be seen side by side.
