Freedom in Tongariro

Covid 19

All welcome, no passport required

We've chosen to operate contactless during the traffic light system. So no passport required.

It's only natural for us to welcome everyone as we strongly believe in equality.

Chances are you could do with some quality time amongst nature this summer. We're passionate about helping you with this, whether you're vaccinated or not.

How we'll operate

  • First of all we trust you'll be responsible and we'll treat accordingly 
  • Our reception will be closed for the 21/22 summer.
  • Check-in instructions will be texted to the mobile number you provide. You'll be texted on your day of arrival.
  • If you need help with anything during your stay you can text us, call us or push the buzzer outside reception. We can either meet you at your room entrance or outside reception to talk face to face if needed or preferred.
  • Servicing of rooms will not happen while we operate contactless. If you need anything simply get in touch and we'll sort for you.
  • All rooms and camping facilities will be cleaned to our high standard as usual.
  • If you have covid symptoms please stay home to minimise the spread of the virus.
