    2. Tongariro National Park: Guided Walk Mt Ruapehu Crater Lake

    Go on an adventure and embark on a full-day guided walk to Ruapehu. Admire Mt. Ruapehu that is the highest (2797m) of the three active andesitic volcanoes in the Tongariro National Park. The last eruption on Mt. Ruapehu was in 2007.  Join the group for lunch on top of the North Island highest volcano from where you can gaze down into the geothermal waters of the crater lake.

  • Tongariro National Park: 2-Hour Guided Sunset Walk

    3. Tongariro National Park: 2-Hour Guided Sunset Walk

    Experience the breathtaking volcanic terrain even if you are limited in time. The exact route of this walk is chosen to suit the level of ability for the group, an easier route can be selected if walking on a pathless track is too difficult. Walk for approximately 60 – 80 minutes before enjoying a glass of New Zealands sparkling wine as you watch the sunset. The preferred route is the Taranaki Falls loop track. Other route options are a return trip starting at the world-famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing track or a return route to sunset ridge or Meads Wall.  Learn about geology, volcanology and New Zealand cultural history from your knowledgable guide. This is a memorable way to see the National Park with sunset lighting up a majestic Alpine setting.

What people are saying about Manawatū-Whanganui

The guides were great and overall it was fun. I should have done more research to realize I didn't need a guided tour. I think I would have had more fun on my own. We stopped more than I would have had I been without the group.

Wear hiking boots as it is some uneven terrain as well as sea a reasonable condition. An amazingly beautiful and raw nature that is not seen in many other places. Super service from the guides

Incredible and deeply exciting experience to be faced with awareness due to the physical effort required. The crossing from the mountains to the woods is truly memorable!
