About this area


Located in Ohakune, Canoe Safaris Lodge is in the city centre and on the riverwalk. Mountain Bike Station and Waitonga Falls Walk Trailhead are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Tongariro National Park (and vicinity) and Ohakune Old Coach Road. Enjoy the area's slopes with downhill skiing, snowboarding and skiing lessons, and don't miss out on the sledging. Our guests appreciate the motel's central and quiet location.

Above expectation

Very clean and comfortable accommodation. We stayed in a studio unit with a small kitchen facility that had all the basics. Great spa pool that we enjoyed after a big day on the mountain. Friendly and informative host. Thanks so much. We enjoyed our time in Ohakune.
