Kevin Hunting Tahr

Family owned and operated, Kevin and Leigh would like to extend a warm country welcome to you.

We have lived in the Ruapehu region for all our lives and have an extensive local knowledge about the mountains and the National Park.

Kevin is a keen hunter in the local bush and Leigh has skied and hiked on, over and around Mt Ruapehu forever!

Situated on the south side of Tongariro National Park and Mount Ruapehu we are located at the start of the mountain road to the Turoa Ski Field – New Zealand’s largest ski field.

We are only a half hours drive away from Whakapapa Ski Field and the start of the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing hike.

Our perfect location also allows for a short 2 minute walk to Ohakune’s most famous restaurants assuring you an easy relaxing stay.

Offering clean comfortable accommodation we invite you to stay in our cosy self-contained motel units or enjoy our traditional alpine lodge rooms and facilities.

Contact us at Ruapehu Motel for your next stay in Ohakune.
