Summer members enjoy discounted mountain lodge accommodation at two spectacular locations. Clamber up ancient volcanic peaks, stroll through alpine forests or pedal along some of the nation’s best cycle trails.
From the doorsteps of our lodges at Whakapapa Village and Ohakune, there are 80,000 hectares of UNESCO Dual World Heritage Area to explore. Our lodges have affordable bunk rooms and private double rooms to suit all members, so grab some friends, plan a family road trip or a couple’s weekend this summer.
Our buildings have large communal spaces for members to connect, regale adventures and for younger members to make friends. The fully-equipped kitchens are ideal for cooking toasties or hearty post-adventure meals. Drying rooms take care of wet clothing and equipment, and there are plenty of books and board games to keep everyone entertained.
We are not a hotel. Members take care to leave the buildings tidy during and after their stay. By not providing a summer custodian, we can offer affordable self-catered stays.
Accommodation is a mixture of bunk rooms and double bedrooms. We supply the duvets and pillows, you just need to bring sheets, pillow cases and food and beverages.
Summer memberships are valid between 1 November and 30 April for individuals aged 18 years old and older. Members are welcome to bring up to three family members or guests. Unfortunately, we cannot cater for children younger than two years old.
During the shoulder season and winter (from 1 May to 31 October), summer members are welcome to stay at all our buildings - including two catered lodges on Whakapapa Ski Field which open during the ski season. Non-member rates do apply, though. Call us to find out more.
We rely on members to help maintain club facilities, so all new members are required to attend one weekend work-party. We run approximately six per year. They are social affairs and a great opportunity to meet other members and learn about the club.
