River Birches offers boutique New Zealand lodge accommodation in Turangi, on the southern shores of Lake Taupo and just north of the Tongariro National Park. The lodge provides quiet seclusion and understated stylish accommodation close to the renowned Tongariro Crossing and only footsteps away from the world famous fly fishing on the Tongariro River.
