Full description
Enjoy one of the world's best 1-day hikes, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in the Tonagriro National Park.

You’ll begin your adventure with a transfer from the National Park Village base, to the beginning of the track. Equiped with boots and crampons, if required, you will start the 21.4 kilometer track up to the saddle between Mt. Ngauruhoe and Mt. Tongariro. Take in the vast array of colors and textures which are created from sulphur, aluminium, silica, and many other mineral deposits released from within the Earth’s Crust.

Marvel at the rich natural landscape that boasts dual UNESCO world-heritage status and descend past the Red Crater, the Emerald Lakes, the new Te Maari crater and down to Ketetahi.

At the end of your hike, your transfer will be waiting.
