One of the best things to do with the whole family in nearby Tongariro National Park Village is a game of Mini Golf at Schnapps Bar.

The brand new 18 hole mini golf course packed with lots of challenges and a water feature. The course is well designed and is themed to suit the environment. For example, there are several holes that are designed to mimic particular parts of the arduous climb over the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, like The Devil’s Staircase! Plus it also has Chair Lifts, Snowmobiles and water features.

The course features a number of wonderful flora and plant displays with signage describing each. Why not stop by for some fun as a couple or family or friends!

Afterwards relax in the garden bar with panoramic views of the central plateau mountains, with affordable food and drink readily available.

Schnapps Bar is located at 2 Findlay St, National Park Village, Ruapehu. Open midday till late.

Skotel Alpine Resort offers a range of accommodation options including hotel accommodation, backpacker’s accommodation and small cabins located in the heart of the North Island within the beautiful Tongariro National Park.
