Tongariro Guided Walks offers quality guided walking experiences on tracks in and around the Tongariro National Park, Aotearoa New Zealand's very first World Heritage site.
From April 2021 Tongariro Guided Walks has become a part of Adventure Outdoors Tongariro. Terry, the original owner of TGW enjoyed growing the the business and is happy that his long time friend, Sarah Cate is now at the helm of Tongariro Guided Walks.
Still specialising in small groups and Private tours, our knowledgeable, caring guides can also manage large groups in a way that makes each person, on every trip, feel that they have gained insights into the landscape, its people and its history. We have your comfort and safety in mind.
The tragic eruption that occurred on Whakaari/White Island on Monday 9 December 2019 has not had any affect on any of the volcanoes of Tongariro National Park. These continue to be monitored by the appropriate Government Agencies. There is always some degree of volcanic risk, but we heed the advice found at https://www.geonet.org.nz/volcano.
Tongariro Guided Walks (formerly known as Walking Places) has operated as a premium guided walking provider since 2004. Terry Blumhardt, original Owner and Head Guide has changed direction in his career, so hands over to Adventure Outdoors, safe in the knowledge that the ethos of a carefully chosen team, who provide exceptional guided hiking tours will continue to guide on numerous tracks, including the world famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing in both Summer and Winter.
