RIVER BIRCHES, TURANGI

RUSTIC, TRANQUIL COTTAGE OR LODGE ACCOMMODATION

Will you stay in a peaceful, cedar clad, three bedroom cottage amidst exotic birdsong? Or one of three guest rooms in a rustic lodge, surrounded by tranquil gardens?

The decision, of course, is entirely yours. But it’s the sort of pleasing dilemma that can raise its head when you’re considering reserving at River Birches, as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand. The other questions are equally as tantalising, and as pleasant to contemplate. Will you spend lazy days fly fishing for trout in the teeming, crystal waters of the renowned Tongariro River.

Or will you venture into the nearby Tongariro National Park with its scenically spectacular Tongariro Crossing and its exhilarating winter skiing on Mount Raupehu? Again, the choice is yours, but wherever fancy takes you, at the end of the day you’ll be able to return to your cosy cottage, or lodge, and relax in peace before tucking into a sumptuous dinner.
