Kia ora, and welcome to Whakapapa Holiday Park

Whakapapa Holiday park

We are located at the base of Mount Ruapehu in the Tongariro National Park, the closest accommodation to Whakapapa Ski Field, one of  New Zealand’s best ski fields. Also on our doorstep is the world-renowned Tongariro Alpine Crossing as well as many stunning short and multi-day hikes. Nearby are some great mountain bike tracks, one of New Zealand’s best trout fishing areas, guided and unguided river canoeing plus other fun outdoor activities.

A shuttle service runs from the Holiday Park providing transport to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Whakapapa ski field and train and bus transfers from National Park Village.

This is a special area, of great significance to the local Maori with plenty of history and indigenous culture to be discovered. Tongariro National Park is a World Heritage Area.

Accommodation options include powered campervan sites, tents sites, cabins, a 32-bed lodge and backpacker beds which available up to 2 weeks in advance. 

The Holiday Park is nestled in sheltered beech forest with a beautiful mountain stream running alongside.
