Tongariro National Park

Tongariro National Park has a long history of preserving New Zealand's pristine alpine landscape. The mountainous reserve in the center of the North Island houses three active volcanoes--the aquamarine crater lakes that adorn these volcanic hotspots are widely considered to be among the best attractions in the country. During a trip to Tongariro National Park, many visitors choose to hike and climb to admire the lakes on challenging day excursions. Tongariro National Park is in Manawatu-Wanganui Region.

Where to stay in Tongariro National Park

The few accommodations within the park itself cluster around Route 48--the main road leading into the protected area--and consist of a campsite and two well-appointed alpine-style hotels. If you can't find a room there, look just outside the entrance to the settlement of National Park, offering a selection of mid-range and luxury mountain lodges on Route 4. Most of the options there offer free parking and complimentary breakfast.
