Karioi Lodge caters to all types of travellers with dorm share rooms. Food is self-catering. There is a fully-fitted kitchen and the town is only 15 minutes away. Dorm share rooms can be exchanged for a twin, double (or even a house) or a campsite for an extra charge on request on arrival only (and only if there is availability).
Express Bus: Catch the bus to Hamilton and then get the connection bus to Raglan. We’ll pick you up from outside the library in Raglan.
Stray Bus: No worries, your bus will pull right into our camp. Raglan will be one of your stops, so you can jump off the Stray Bus, do your Surf & Stay and then jump back on in a couple of days and continue your trip.
Self-drive: We are 2.5 hours from Auckland (drive south to Ngaruawahia, turn right at the BP station and follow the signs) and 45 minutes from Hamilton (take State Highway 23).
Your Raglan to surf camp and back transfer is always included in the price, the rest of the transportation costs are at your own expense.
There are no meals included in your package, but you will have access to our massive communal kitchen so stock up on groceries and prepare a feast for yourself!
