Fathers' Day Weekend

at the Chateau Tongariro


Only 4 Rooms Left!

What better way to celebrate Fathers' Day than being part of our popular escorted rail tour to the Chateau. 

Enjoy the relaxing comforts of the 'Northern Explorer' as you travel through the Waikato farming hinterland and on through the rigged King Country. One of the features is the famous Raurimu Spiral where the train climbs up to the Central Plateau before arriving at National Park.

Our special night is at the Chateau, set magnificently amongst the tussock of Tongariro National Park with its three impressive mountains as a backdrop. Relax and enjoy a special evening including a Fathers' Day set menu dinner. 

After a relaxing morning we return on the Sunday to arrive back into Auckland early evening. 

The 'Northern Explorer' Train departs from the Strand in Auckland. With specified stops along the way including; Papakura, Pukekohe (if minimum numbers are meet), Hamilton and Otorohanga.
