The extraordinary trout fishing is the reason that most guests visit the lodge. They always have experienced guides that really know their fishing and the waters. There are a number of streams and lakes in the area that you can drive and walk to, in addition to the heli fly-out fishing. What ever you may have heard, the fishing really is that good and worth doing. Sight casting to huge trout with dries, nymphs or streamers is why you fly for twelve hours.

Tongariro Lodge has developed an international reputation for fine food and wine. The Lodge specializes in serving the best of New Zealand game and traditional foods. The warm atmosphere of the Lodge is best experienced in front of an open fire over a four-course dinner as the day's adventures are recounted, and stories get taller as the evening wears on.

A spa and an all weather tennis court are also on the grounds. A choice of private luxury accommodations is available in one bedroom chalets or two to five bedroom villas, all with private facilities and views of the Tongariro River or mountains beyond.
