Egmont is the European name that was given to Mount Taranaki by Captain Cook, today the names Taranaki and Egmont are basically interchangeable, with the surrounding region called Taranaki and the National Park that surrounds the mountain named Egmont. Regardless of what you call it, a stay in our Egmont accommodation will place you in some of the most spectacular surrounds in NZ.
For those after a winter rush while staying in an Egmont hotel, the glorious snowfields of Manganui are the place to be. Complete with kilometre long runs, natural half pipes and rope tows up the mountain, skiing or snowboarding Mount Egmont is a definite must if you are here in the colder months.
And when the snow has melted, the Egmont National Park appears and a whole new playground emerges with excellent tramping tracks and abseiling sites and natural waterslides to cool you off. Our Egmont hotels are the perfect base for exploring the brilliant natural landscape on offer.
