Peter and Nina took over the Lodge in April 2017 after many years of Corporate Life in the Private/Government and ICT sectors in Wellington & Auckland. By the way, there are two other members of staff (Bella the dog & Otto the cat) who cannot always control their excitement when meeting guests so if you would rather not meet them or have any allergies, please let us know in advance and we will ensure they are kept “under the stairs” 

Otto & Bella are members of our family and our staff, we have to search our guests regularly when they leave to make sure they are not taking them home with them!

Chalet Eiger is certified by Qualmark, New Zealand Tourism’s Standards accreditation body, a 5 star rating and Silver level in supporting sustainable tourism. Qualmark helps businesses become more sustainable from a people, planet and profit perspective.

A Qualmark logo is that final seal of approval that signifies our guest experience is one of the most high-quality experiences New Zealand has to offer. Our Silver Award is evidence of a sophisticated tourism business that consistently exceeds guest expectations.  Proactive leadership and management ensure that a culture of high performance is evident from the reviews we have received since we started business in April 2017.  We have a real focus on continuously improving our economic, social and environmental performance to ensure the tourism product we deliver is a genuine, constantly improving sustainable experience.

Peter recently borrowed a drone and this is his first attempt at some footage. It shows how the Chalet sits in its environment and some of our neighbours. Check back to see if his skills get better!
