  • Frozen lake with Mount Ruapehu, Tongariro National Park

This 19km trek is New Zealand's best one day walk. The track leads up to the saddle between Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro and then diverts over Mt Tongariro. Mt Tongariro is not a single volcano, but a complex of craters that have been active at different periods. The landscape on Tongariro is peppered with the different coloured and shaped craters, scoured volcanic rocks, mountain springs, and brightly coloured emerald lakes. Summer offers a majestic landscape of recent resultant volcanic activity. There is a vast array of colours and textures created from Sulfur, Aluminum, Silica, and many other mineral deposits released from within the Earth's Crust.
