Property Description

Skotel Alpine Resort is 100% owned and operated and New Zealand’s highest hotel, located in the heart of the North Island within the Tongariro National Park.

The hotel offers guests a variety of room types, from Backpacker rooms to View rooms of the Tongariro National Park and the volcanic mountain peaks of Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu.

It is conveniently located in Whakapapa Village at the foot of Mount Ruapehu, within 500 meters of Tongariro National Park Whakapapa Visitor Centre.
Hiking trails start directly at the hotel and the Ska Waka as well as the Mount Ruapehu ski field (Jun-Oct.) are a 6km drive up the mountain.

The hotel is the ideal base for exploring the UNESCO world heritage park – and the many hiking and biking trails in the area. We also offer lunch packages so you won’t get hungry on your adventures.

From the hotel you can walk to Taranaki Falls, Tama Lakes and Silika Rapids and for those up for a day trail walk, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Shuttles for the crossing can be booked upon arrival and leave from our doorstep.

After an exciting day hiking, biking, skiing (Jun-Oct) or sight-seeing guests can enjoy a refreshing sauna, a relaxing spa, or unwind over a drink or a meal at the Skotel Restaurant and Bar.

At the Skotel our friendly, experienced staff have all the information to enable you to design your own adventure.

Great vibe and location with a stunning view of Mount Ngauruhoe. The restaurant and bar are great and hiking tracks start basically right from the front door. This is a very convenient and chill place to stay while you explore the area.
