Whether you’re stalking Red Stag during the annual roar or listening for bird life from one of our hand-picked camping locations, the experiences available at Tokomaru are many. Spend your time fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout or mountain biking through our endless redwood trails. Should your adventures take you beyond our borders, the Whanganui River, Mount Tongariro and their expansive national parks await.


Whether you’re a novice, experienced and looking to further hone your skills or you’re here to take a bucket-list trophy animal, we can cater to your specific needs. Take a Can-Am from one of our luxury cabins to begin a day hunting for fallow deer and wild boar. Arrive in Autumn to track the distinctive bugle calls of our wapiti elk or take the opportunity to stalk a prized red stag during their annual roar. Whatever your interest, one of our experienced guides will lead you through the perfect hunting experience.

It’s important to know what to expect when hunting with us. To prepare, please see our comprehensive hunting guide here.


Our waterways epitomise New Zealand backcountry fishing and can be navigated to by Can-am or helicopter. Set off from your luxury accommodation on a complimentary 4WD vehicle or have our helicopter transport you directly from Hilltop lodge. Your guide will take you on an unforgettable Brown and Rainbow Trout fishing experience in one of the best places to cast in the country.


Experience the stunning craters, mountain springs, glistening lakes and active volcanoes of the World Heritage listed Tongariro National Park. Hike New Zealand’s greatest one day walk, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing or hit the slopes at Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields in the winter months. When it’s warmer, go mountain biking, trout fishing or river rafting. We’re fortunate enough to be within a short flight from this amazing location and return helicopter transfers can be arranged on request.

From relaxed walks to more challenging hikes you can experience the woods and hills at your own pace.
