testimonial 1Hi there - I just wanted to email and say a BIG THANK YOU again for the fantastic stay at the lodge this weekend just gone (the Tauranga team). It was a blessed weekend from friends who wanted to treat me to this experience so many of the goodies that came our way WERE a surprize. I loved it all and the weather as well, was part of the plan.

You do a great job there team, and that goes out to all you help in the kitchen and to the cleaners as well. Please tell them - THANK YOU. See you next time!!!!


testimonial 3To the staffs of Adventure Lodge,
A big Thank-you for just being YOU. Our group of 7 ladies, sometimes colourfully dressed, were well impressed with your wonderful Tongariro Package. We were able to get away for a weekend, enjoy our beautiful countryside and have a stressfree time doing it. Your warm and friendly manner was well received and we enjoyed spending time and chatting with you both. The packed lunch was absolutely amazing, the sandwich was just devine!!! Thank you for everything, it was a home away from home, minus the children.

Kind regareds,

Stayed in the Adventure Lodge 18th & 19th of november, did the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, and it was great!
Just want to say THANK YOU for the hospitality, the humour and the great service. Highly recommended!
Love my T-shirt :-)

Hi there
When we left you we went to the ski area but unfortunately there were just clouds so we didn't see the view you hoped we would see. Then we went on driving theWanganui river road. The weather was very good so we've had a nice trip. Wiel has made a video of our Tongariro Crossing you can see it below.
Once again we want to thank you and Ron for your kindness and your perfect suggestions for our trip and for the good meals.

Hi there
Thanks again for a wonderful weekend everyone is still on a high and buzzing about it, you, Ron and your family were fantastic and so well organised that everything just ran like clockwork. We will be back next year as everyone is asking about planning another walk and even some of those who don't want to do a big walk might just return for Ron's steaks!
Once again thanks a lot and if you have any walk suggestions to beat Tongariro please let us know.
Kind regards,

Hi there
We stayed with you on 12th November and did the Tongariro crossing the next day, and just wanted to say a big Thankyou for your help and encouragement in getting us out on the trail.
We were feeling somewhat daunted by the thought of the crossing, not to mention the youthfulness of virtually all the other guests, but you recommended walking poles and gave us lots of encouragement.
It was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand, and when we look at the photos we wish we were there again to do it all over again!

Thanks again

Hi there
Thanks for a great weekend. We loved the Tongariro Crossing. We thought your package was great value. You made it very easy with your great organisation and all your helpful tips. Attached is a photo of us all in our T shirts….which I have bored all my children with.
Thanks again Kind regards

I just wanted to say thank you from all 21 of us who stayed over the weekend! We were incredibly lucky to have amazing weather and conditions but more importantly the service you provided us with was great. The package deal really made the whole experience hassle free, you provided us much needed and very useful advice and knowledge on the crossing, it was great value and I know everyone really enjoyed themselves (especially wearing our ‘just done it’ t-shirts home!!). I know we all would (and some of us already have) recommend it to others wanting to do the crossing.
I also really appreciated all the pre-trip organization and correspondence you had with me. It wasn’t exactly perfect with me changing names / numbers right up until the last day so thanks for making that relatively painless!

Thanks so much for everything

Kind regards

We just wanted to tell you what a fantastic time we had staying with you! The Freedom Package was perfect. When people ask what the best part of our two month trip was, we tell them it was our Togariro Crossing experience! thanks so much.
