Situated on 22 acres of park-like grounds on the banks of the legendary Tongariro River, this luxury lodge is a rustic haven. The private chalets and villas are ideal for fishing enthusiasts and anyone who loves outdoor adventures.

Fine art and Maori artefacts adorn the walls, complimenting the carefully chosen décor and furnishings. Relax in front of a fire and let yourself unwind completely.

Food and wine are an important part of the Tongariro Lodge experience. Dine on New Zealand game and traditional dishes in one of the two dining rooms, or take a picnic basket with you when you head out to explore the area.

Founded by legendary angler and guide Tony Hayes, the lodge offers a variety of fishing experiences for guests. The experienced guides can provide access to over 40 rivers and three lakes.
