Waiouru  ::  Ohakune  :: National Park  ::  Whakapapa Village  ::  Taumarunui

South of Lake Taupo and overlooked by a triad of volcanoes, the high-altitude plateau setting of the Ruapehu region is a breathtaking location for a myriad of outdoor adventures. Explore the ski areas of Mount Ruapehu and the wilderness of Tongariro National Park, with its native forest, rugged hillsides, and white-water rivers, and stop over in small but hospitable villages like Ohakune, Waiouru, National Park Village and Whakapapa.
