About Us


Peter and Nina  are your hosts at Chalet Eiger. New Zealand has been their home for over 30 years, Nina was originally from Norway and Peter from the UK. Their immediate fur family is completed by Bella the Poodle cross and Otto the Tonkinese cat so if you prefer not to interact with pets please let us know.

 Nina and Peter are both well-travelled and have lived outside New Zealand, they both have a passion for local cuisine and wines, they have loved living in Wellington, taking advantage of the many cultural and gourmet delights it has to offer. Nina has been a senior manager in both the Public & Private Sectors for many years and Peter has extensive sales and marketing experience in the technology and consulting industries.  

They have just moved to Taupo where they have already made many friends and look forward to share their knowledge of the area with their guests. 

Nina and Peter look forward to welcoming you to, and sharing with you, Chalet Eiger.
