Tongariro Guided Walks - Guided Hiking, Tongariro National Park, New Zealand.

Tongariro Guided Walks offers quality guided walking experiences on tracks in and around the Tongariro National Park, New Zealand's very first World Hertitage site.

Tongariro Guided Walks  (formerly known as Walking Places) has operated as a premium guided walking provider since 2004.  Terry Blumhardt, is the Owner and Head Guide.  He works with his carefully chosen team, to provide exceptional guided hiking tours, including the world famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing in both Summer and Winter.  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.

Join us to find out why the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is often referred to as the best one day walk in New Zealand, (if not the world), with a Guide who will reveal some of the secrets of this stunning area.  Much calmer now, after the minor volcanic event of 6 August 2012 on Mt Tongariro, there are still some exciting new features to show you!  Come along with us and learn about one of the newest parts of New Zealand, and experience the reality of walking safely on an active volcano!
Not everyone is looking to walk all day up and over a mountain, we understand this.  Tongariro Guided Walks offers a huge variety of walks and even sightseeing options, ranging from a few hours, through to full day hikes and multi-day packages.   There is something for everyone wanting to explore this incredible area.

There are many reasons to choose a guided walking experience. Some people seek the safety and reassurance they have local knowledge on weather and track conditions, while others are looking for the story behind the landscape. Many use the opportunity to spend a day with “one of the locals”, or maybe you just want someone to make the most of your time by finding you the most scenic spots. We take care of all of the bother about how to get there and back, and what to take along.

Whatever your reason, contact us, and we will be happy to help make your time in this fantastic area the best it can be.
