Prices:
On request
  • Looking North in 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. Winter has the luxury of few other walkers and the fun of sliding on snow. No outdoor experience is necessary. Winter offers the opportunity to walk through the magnificent snow covered landscape. All training and tuition is given on the day. Crampons and ice-axes are supplied for a fantastic alpine experience. The Winter Tongariro Alpine Crossing has the sights of summer without the crowds.
