Companies from various European countries include the Skotel Alpine Resort in a North Island tour.
A circuit of Rotorua, Mt Ruapehu and Waitomo Caves can make an interesting 4-5 night tour out of Auckland.
Being half way between Auckland and Wellington makes Mt Ruapehu, the dominant feature of the Volcanic Plateau, a convenient stopping point and one that provides a point of difference to the country towns.
Two nights at the Skotel Alpine Resort provides the opportunity to do the Tongariro Crossing without the need for a lengthy bus trip at the start and finish of the Crossing.
The Skotel’s situation in Whakapapa Village means that there is a variety of half-day walks available from our door to enable a mix and match of activity and leisure.
A combination of opportunity to do the crossing and easier options from our door or using local transport can provide the tour bus driver with a day off.
Our manager and staff are knowledgeable about the vast range of activities available within a convenient distance and details of alternatives can be provided to form part of the tour package.Book Now ›
