The Alpine Fox – Ohakune

Located in Ohakune, at the base of Mt Ruapehu, The Alpine Fox is an ideal base for skiing in winter or mountain biking and tramping in the summer. 

Our comfortable chalet is situated in a quiet location at the rear of Turoa Alpine village and backs onto a reserve, surrounded by mature trees and expansive lawns. An undercover spa pool adds a touch of luxury and makes relaxing at the end of the day a pleasure.

You will feel like you are in the countryside as you listen to the tuis and watch the rabbits. However a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk and you will find yourself in the heart of Ohakune with it’s wide range of amenities. Here you can hire mountain bikes or ski equipment or access transport to tramp the famous Tongariro Crossing. For those seeking a more relaxing break you can stroll along the riverside walk and relax in one of the numerous cafes or restaurants and watch the world go by.  The Carrot Adventure Park is ideal for families and even has an outdoor gym for mum and dad!

On the ground floor of the chalet there is a bathroom, a laundry area and an open plan kitchen, living and dining room. The fully equipped kitchen with full size stove, microwave and fridge/freezer makes self-catering a breeze whilst the comfy sofas, TV with Freeview and a selection of DVDs, music, games and books mean you will remain entertained whatever your choice of media. A  log burner and heat pump/air conditioning unit will keep you comfortable whatever the temperature outside and a purpose built drying cupboard will take care of wet outdoor gear.

Upstairs, under the eaves you will find an open plan room with two king single beds and a separate bedroom with a double bed.

For larger groups there are two ‘marae style’ mattresses available (suitable for children/teens) or a double sofa bed.
