    Fantastic value for money. Could not fault this Resort. Staff were brilliant. Resort has everything you need. We'll be back to do some other walks. Highly recommend this package if you are doing Tongariro crossing.

    I'm booked, from Texas, taking my two grandson's skiing. How far is the drive from Auckland and is there a bus service from Auckland or a car hire available. Thank you so much.

    You can take the train from downtown Auckland and not have to worry about driving. The hotel will arrange a shuttle from the train station. Enjoy!
