Welcome to the Hikumutu...
Hikumutu Lodge is a little slice of paradise; nestled on the banks of the Whanganui River, sheltered by the peaks of the Central Plateau, and only minutes from the rural King Country town of Taumarunui. Hike, bike, or horse-trek over acres of tranquil bush and experience nature as it was meant to be – uninterrupted and peaceful. In every direction is a 360 degree view of creation, including the North Islands biggest mountain and best ski fields, Ruapehu.
Hikumutu Lodge offers cabin style accommodation for up to 45 people in modernised army barracks, with fully functional kitchen, bathroom, and shower facilities. The lodge has been primarily established for summer youth camps, but is also available year round for you, your family, group or organization to unwind and enjoy.
Hikumutu is the ideal location to escape the city lights and experience the peace and tranquility of New Zealand’s countryside or explore the various adventure activities the region has on offer.
The lodge is located just 10 minutes from Taumarunui; a town which is known for being ‘the middle of everywhere’ because of its centrality and close proximity to many of the districts most popular attractions.
You can check out what’s close by to plan your itinerary; whether it be a summer trip down the river or trip to the snow in winter, there’s always something for you to explore.
